Why Filtered Water is Better for Your Tea
We don’t need to tell you how important it is to drink water, drummed into our brains from an early age we should be aiming for two litres a day. We understand how hard it can be, especially when you’re drinking it straight from the tap.
In case you haven’t experienced a tap vs filtered water taste test, we thought we’d give you a verbal version. Chlorine is used to disinfect your kitchen tap water, so can have a real impact on the taste, it can also include a number of pollutants from fluoride to aluminium making it taste pretty bad. When you use a water filter it can reduce the chlorine in your water by 99%, therefore giving you cleaner, healthier and better tasting water – which makes your tea taste delicious! We suggest keeping the Brita Maxtra Jug full in your fridge for easy access when you fancy brew.
