The taste of water?
Mon, 02-25-2013 - 9:55am

I drink water all the time and I have friends who refuse to drink it because they don't like the taste of it. I can't understand this because in my opinion water doesn't have a taste. I am just curious if anyone else thinks water has a taste.

Some waters do have a more distinct taste, for example I grew up on well water and I can tell anytime I am somewhere that has well water even now.  There are some bottled waters in particular that do have a different "taste" about them, and I can definitely tell the difference between my tap water and the water we out of our filtered water system.  But in general, I would say yes, water is tasteless.  My brother refuses to drink water because its tasteless, he complains that he needs some sort of flavoring.  I aways tell him if he wants some flavoring in it then add a slice or lemon or lime.
