Many people often pay a lot of attentions on tea leaves and tea equipment in order to enjoy a nice cup of tea. However, people often overlooked the importance of water quality in making a perfect cup of tea. Scientifically, water is H2O. In our living environment, water does not exist as simple as it is. There are a lot of other minerals co-exist in water.

Zinc and Copper ruines the taste of water

As far as we ascertain, there are some minerals that make taste worse. For example, zinc that is widely exists in water supplying system. 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. Generally, zinc almost exists everywhere in common water supplying system, especially the GI pipe. GI means galvanized iron. 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. This material is very commonly used in most of country for flange, joint, reducer and etc.
