Zinc will makes the taste of water becomes flat and causes dryness in your mouth. Astringency is referring to the very uncomfortable dry feeling that remains on your tongue and throat after drinking.

It is the iron pipe that is laminated by zinc to protect the iron from the rust. Other source of zinc in our water supplying system is brass. Brass consists of copper and zinc.
