March 8, 2021
The weather is getting hotter and hotter. When thirsty, you don't want to drink milk tea with fruit juice. Natural mineral water is a good choice.
The shelves are full of hundreds of mineral water, including those with gas, those without gas, those from volcanoes, glaciers and underground springs. The price difference of these water can reach dozens of pieces.
Now people pay more and more attention to water and have more and more requirements! On the one hand, I am also curious: what are the subtle differences in the taste of different water?
Therefore, with doubt, we understand several indicators that affect the water entrance feeling of mineral water .
TDS shows how many mg of dissolved solids are dissolved in 1L water, which is what we usually call soft hardness. The lower the TDS content, the softer the taste. The pH value is the index of acidity and alkalinity, and more than 7 is alkaline. The taste of weak alkaline water is slightly sweet, which is relatively suitable for drinking. Mineral water, to see whether the content is balanced, mineral balanced water taste will be better.
After understanding the indicators of water, combined with brand history, taste evaluation and popularity, we selected several kinds of mineral water to taste one by one and explore the delicious water with you.
When China's domestic TV series "Ode to joy" was popular, people on the Internet always asked, "what kind of water did LiuTao drink?"
In the play, LiuTao drinks water when he doesn't agree with each other. The lines of the water bottle are like a champagne bottle. The whole body is transparent, and the body of the bottle has embossed Alps. It looks very high-end. This is Evian water.
Evian's water source is Evian town in France. It is backed by the Alps and faces Lake Leman. After at least 15 years of glacier rock filtration, it is directly filled in the water source. More than 300 water quality checks are carried out every day to keep away from any pollution and human contact. It is favored by elites.
Unscrewing the aluminum bottle cap, Yiyun water is sweet and refreshing. With the blessing of the snow mountain pattern on the bottle body, it seems to drink the snow water flowing under the Alpine glacier.
The mineral taste of Yiyun water is quite prominent. After testing, the TDS content is 289mg / L, which is a very high value. It also shows that the water quality of this water is hard, and it is suitable for people who want to supplement minerals
PH: 7.23 weak alkaline

After studying the brand information, we know that the packaging designer of Voss is Neil Kraft, the creative director of Calvin Klein. It is no wonder that mineral water has made a high-end light luxury feeling! If Voss sells a water cup, I think I will not hesitate to take it down.
Voss is also the designated water for high-end places such as Peninsula Hotel and Emirates first class. The quality of Voss is obvious to all, and it is absolutely worthy of being called "Hermes in water".
The first sip of soft water makes you feel like this. It's very soft and clear, like white and light cirrus clouds flowing in the sky, like mountain springs flowing in deep mountains and dense forests
It turns out that the ultimate pure water will make people unconsciously close to nature.
The index shows that the pH value of Voss is 7.5, which is a very standard weak alkaline water, and the TDS value is an amazing 22.7. No wonder the texture of water is so light.

Paris water is natural mineral water with gas. It comes from the Vosges Mountains in the south of France. Originally called les bouillens, it means "boiling water". It reminds people of its refreshing bubble taste.

In recent years, Nongfu mountain spring has taken a high-end route. It has been swiped on the screen by its new packaging illustration for some time. It can be said that it has played very well.
Among the eight water sources of Nongfu spring, Moya spring in Changbai Mountain is the best. The Nongfu spring produced here is a glass bottle. The bottle body design adopts the unique patterns of northeast tiger and Korean pine in Changbai Mountain, which is very national!
The TDS index of Nongfu spring is slightly higher than that of Voss. It's still soft as a whole. The smell is sweet when opening the bottle and the entrance is fresh. I really love soft water!

The mineral water evaluated above can be divided into hard water and soft water according to TDS.
The TDS value of hard water is more than 200, which generally flows through snow mountain, hot spring or deep underground. It is rich in calcium, sodium, potassium and other trace elements beneficial to human body, which is helpful for bone growth and skin smoothness.
Even if the price of a bottle of mineral water is 40 or 50 yuan, which is 10 times higher than that of pure water, it is always filled with refrigerators in European and American homes, such as Evian water. When foreigners are away on business, they will rely on mineral water to recuperate their intestines and stomach.
Although hard water is good for making tea or coffee, soft water with low TDS value and smooth taste should be used. Especially for cold tea, Voss or Nongfu mountain spring are good choices.
As a lazy cancer who doesn't want to wash the cup, I just put tea bags or fruit slices into the bottle for cold brewing. The bottle of Nongfu mountain spring is narrow on the top and wide on the bottom. Compared with the cylindrical Voss, it is more friendly for cold brewing. Tea and fruit can also contact with mineral water in the largest area, fully releasing tea polyphenols and sweetness. The brewed tea is cold and refreshing.
Hard water tastes slightly salty and thick. Compared with soft water, soft water is more suitable for catering. Therefore, in some high-level restaurants such as Michelin, soft water will be used for delicacy.
In general, when we choose mineral water, we can refer to TDS index values more than the color value of bottles and water source origin. In combination with their drinking conditions, we can choose the mineral water suitable for you to make tea or drink daily.
