Do you know that the taste of water varies everyday?

[2017.11.22] Posted By

You might have noticed that the taste of tea is not the same every day. The taste and the flavor somehow differ on a daily basis. It is water that plays the major role.

The taste of water changes everyday

If we drink tea every day, we could notice that the taste and the flavor of tea differ a lot. It is not because of tea that quality changed. In fact, the taste of water is not consistent every day. It happens in any places we lives regardless of the country. Even the bottled mineral water available in the market, the taste of every batch is different.

Rain affects the taste of water

The taste of water is inconsistent due to the weather. Generally, if the water is collected in rainy day, the taste of water is lighter, a little astringent and flavor might be submerged. If water is collected during or after the heavy rain, it gets worse. I would like to explain the two possibilities that are causing the water taste unstable.

Extra chemicals are added in water treatment plant in rainy day

If you check the tap water carefully, you may notice that the chlorine odor becomes stronger during rainy day. Since the water source is turbid, I assumed that more chemicals would be added. In water treatment plant, they usually use Sodium Hypochlorite, polyaluminum chloride and pH adjusting agent to treat the water. In particular, polyaluminum chloride would greatly affect the taste of water. It would be a minor difference in mineral content. But human’s taste buds are very sensitive to detect the changes.

Rain water that flows into the source water

In a rainy day, rainwater will flow into source of water. As rainwater is running through various terrains and getting in contact with a number of materials, the taste of the source water is greatly affected.

As we know that the water taste is not very nice in rainy weather, we usually store some water before rain starts.
