I am all out of my Floating Leaves DaYuLing but I do have some of their LiShan as wella s some from HouDe so I might just enjoy those for the rest of the month.
Does your well water go through a reverse osmosis process? Does that process add a bit of sodium to the water? Are you able to remove all the sodium afterwards? Does it affect the tea?
I would venture to say RO water is not good for tea. My first brush with this type of water was in India. I was in Darjeeling and brewing teas in my hotel room with RO water. I could hardly get a taste out of the teas with it. When I finally returned home, I marveled at the difference. Darjeeling is also 2200m elevation, but I've had to brew tea with RO water at sea level. Same bland taste.
