We recently came across a video which shows what a cup of tea looks like when made from water of varying states of filtration. My personal view is that this may need investigating by an independent source.
However, it did get me wondering what a cup of tea would look like when brewed with bottled water. I did think of conducting the experiment myself, a pound on a bottle of water is alright, but buying a brand new kettle just to make two cups of tea is a bit excessive, so I shall have to stick to guesswork.
So here is my guess: there would be so little difference you wouldn’t be able to notice.
What I can ascertain for sure though, is that if you want drinking water that is purer than the stuff coming out of your taps, Brita filters are your best bet – at about 20 quid for a jug, and then maybe a fiver every few months or so for a new filter. Compared to even 40p per bottle of water, there’s no argument.
What do you think? Do you think using bottled water will yield a better cup of tea? Have you got a Brita filter, a bottle of water, some tea bags and a couple of spare kettles? If you’ve got answers, get in touch.
