Why is it that water taste like nothing but not all water tastes the same
*coughs* Science side of tumblr- hi.
Water tastes different in different places because water in it’s purest form (only H2O) is not a stable liquid- it draws from it’s surrounding. Pure water in a copper pipe? Your water will draw particles from the pipe and taste more coppery. Since land everywhere has different compositions, the water will taste different based simply on where it’s coming from, since it will have different amounts of various particulates.
The only way all water would taste the same would be if all water was pure. This is possible, but this is unsafe for consumption in more than incremental amount because the pure water will draw nutrients and electrolytes from your body and make you sick, and possibly die if it continues for long periods of time.
Bottled water from one company will typically taste the same no matter where you buy it, though, because the water comes from one place and is then bottled and sent out. So Evian will taste the same everywhere, but might taste different from Dasani.
Basically, pure water acts like a sponge of it’s surroundings.
If you’re still curious, there’s a show called Going Deep with David Rees, and he did an episode where he was trying to make the perfect ice cube and did research on this subject. Short show, very informational and rather funny.
