First off I will say that tap water is completely safe to drink and it is more regulated then bottled water for cleanliness and safety but here’s a couple of things that most people don’t know. I will also say that everything I know comes from when I’ve worked with Northumbria water in the past.
During the summer, in the UK at least, the taste of your water will change as most of our water comes from open toped reservoirs meaning that the amount microbial life in the water goes up and the amount of animals using it as their water source increases. This means water often needs to be cleaned more but the microbial impact still reaches your tap.
One of biggest problems with clean water in the uk atleast is encroachment from ground water between pumping stations and end point e.g. houses. For this reason it is very important to tell your supplier of any changes in colour or grit from your taps. This encroachment can lead to high levels of toxins in the water.
For those of you in the EU, a lot of the water you drink comes from major rivers which go through other countries. This mean that water used for drinking often needs to be cleaned more then we do in the UK as cleaned sewage has been pumped in to the rivers prior.
One final thing anyone who kayaks should know is, after heavy rain ground water and sewage overflow is often diverted in to rivers in order to prevent damage. It’s best not to go swimming the day after heavy rain.
I went through a period of trying every plant-milk in my coffee to work out which ‘performed’ the best! I found Soy to taste the best in my coffee (at least the most similar to the cow’s milk it was replacing) but it split. Nut and coconut milks didn’t split and tasted good, but naturally tasted like the nut or coconut - which I didn’t want in my coffee! Oat milk didn’t split, but sometimes does sink to the bottom of the coffee (not so much of a problem and Minor Figures doesn’t seem to) and tastes pretty good.
Awsome, but PG tips is just the standard. It’s the tea equivalent of buying Gordons because Bombay Sapphire is to expensive and you don’t want the supermarkets own brand. Because last time you did that you made out with your ex in front of your GF and didn’t understand why you all couldn’t get along…
But more importently tea is to bitter without some sugar.
