A sample from Keychange! I stored it badly, though, and it shows. There’s not much flavour left, but I know this used to be fairly tasty. The base is basically nonexistent, there’s just some spicing left. One cup to go; perhaps if I make a smaller cup the flavour will be stronger!

I know I know, same tea different morning. But I’m still trying to iron out some kinks in my tea-drinking experience.

This tea, again, was quite good. but there was still something wrong with the t. It tasted flat, or perhaps even as if the base tea had changed, although I have a theory. For the longest time, I was using my keurig to dispense water into my tea mug, and I was filling the keurig’s water reservoir with tap water. Then, we got one of those culligan water coolers for our house, and I began using the Culligan water to fill up the keurig. This was when I was drinking coffee, for which it is just fine. but any time I used the hot water tap on the Culligan cooler to make myself tea, the teal would always, without any exceptions, come out tasting weird. It’s strange, because cold, the Culligan water is delicious, although it’s a “thicker” water if that makes sense. It is not like spring water, which has a much thinner mouth feel. And I know I sound ridiculous, but the kind of water I use to make my tea seems to absolutely make a difference. So next up, I’m going to experiment with tap water tea and see what happens, although I’ll have to wait for the Keurig to run through the water it already has first in order to get there.

So let’s keep our fingers crossed that I’m right!

Do you guys notice a difference in the taste of your tea depending on what water you use also? I keep trying to tell myself it’s all in my head, but it kind of isn’t.

I totally know what you mean about thick water! Making tea with it can be a bit ick for sure

water absolutely affects taste. It’s likely not in your head at all.

When I lived away from home for school, there were teas I wouldn’t bother taking with me because I knew they didn’t pair as well with the water there.

Ok, whew. I’m so glad it isn’t all in my head. Because I was noticing it with tea after tea, and I was like “seriously? five teas?” here’s hoping changing the water will fix it!

when I was in Florida, there was one tea in particular, I can’t recall what now, that tasted amazing but really odd here in Mississauga. I think it was the difference of hard vs soft water

Plunkybug

Yes, water made a difference when I was in NY last fall making tea.

It’s definitely not in your head. Water quality has been documented to make a difference. If you start with bad water, you’re going to have bad tea. I’ve especially run into this problem at work. I royally screwed up two cups of tea last week. The first time I tried heating water in a paper cup in the microwave. The cup started to burn so it made the water taste burnt. Then I tried using the hot water tap, but the water was really metallic-tasting. Total fail.

When our water pipes were frozen this past winter, we had bottled water for a while, and my teas tasted awful. Flat and flavourless. I use Brita-filtered water most of the time, and that’s when teas taste the best. Tap water is better than bottled, too.
