    Are you not meant to fill the kettle with fresh water for a better cup of tea. Think I read that somewhere.

    Looking forward to a few beers, pizza, chicken wings and watching the golf as my two bets were in with a shout at a place at least. Between the two of them in the first four holes they have a double bogey each and a couple of bogeys.
    Cants!

    This. Learnt that with the wee mans bottles. Always fill with fresh water, continually boiling the same water removes nutrients.

    and continually boiling water also takes out the dissolved oxygen which can make tea taste differently. always use a fresh boil for teas.

    Aye, after the first boil the water loses most of the nutrients etc. I never reboil the kettle, boggin.

    I always put water in just before making tea for that reason.

    Gives me the fear seeing someone reboil kettle water. It changes it on a molecular level, doesn’t feel or taste right.

    Ma mrs is like that with tap water. Just won’t drink it. Only bottled. She says she can “taste” the difference.
    A load of BS imo. Just get the tap water drunk and stop pretending to be a posh *

    There's a difference. Some bottled water is rank, especially Evian.

    Boiling water does not change it on a molecular level. Absolutely not: it is H2O before, during and after boiling. Nor does freezing cause a molecular change.

    I bought a bottle of water in a corner shop last week and couldn’t drink it. It seemed to be Turkish but all I could taste was plastic.

    I normally go for Evian or Volvic.

    Find Evian to have a chalky taste. Tesco own brand water is nice. Perthshire I think it's called.
