I like drinking cold water, but the Taoists recommend that you don't drink ice cold water after Chi Gung - it has an effect on the bodies energetic system, which you would imagine as energy would be required to warm it to body temperature.
I wouldn't use hot water from a tap - better to heat it yourself in a kettle, avoid plastic kettles (because some of the toxic stuff in the plastic gets in to the water), use stainless steel ones.
I would though use filtered water placed in a jug (glass jug preferably) to come to room temperature.
In cold climates it's good to drink 'hot' water - or tea. I use mild green tea in large tea pots. Even in hot countries, it is still better to drink hot water (ie Tea) then cold because it helps better regulate body temperature - this is why in hot countries like India, they serve you tea everywhere, and if you drink tea instead of an iced drink you might find that it helps the body regulate temperature better.
When you heat water, the dissolved oxygen in the water would be removed by the agitation - but that is of no concern. I don't know if there is an effect on pH (I doubt it), but it does increase the ORP (ie makes the water more of an oxidant), but as Tea contains anti-oxidants, this won't be an issue. So it's better to drink hot tea then hot water I'd say.
