Water again.

Since my topic got deleted from last time.


Is Aquafina the same as Dasani water?

I remember an article saying it is.

They are "manufactured" by the same general process. Reverse osmosis followed by very taste-poor remineralization.

... I have used both Aquafina and Dasani for brewing Japanese teas with equal success ... I guess. Unfortunately I have only seen either in small plastic bottles.

But I can get Pura Vida in gallon jugs which is essentially the same.

I have not done a lot of experimenting outside of these. Someone recommended these for Japanese teas. The results are better than our well water which is harder than nails. So, any improvement is a plus.

Still it kills me to put more plastic into the environment!
