Depends where it comes from -- out of a spring on a Welsh mountainside or out of a tap after it's passed through half a dozen people on the way?

It's easier to describe the other one -- flat, stale, lifeless. The mountain spring water is just the opposite.

Note to non-UK people. The above refers to a study which allegedly stated that, being a long river, water from the Thames was pumped out of the river, filtered, fed into the public water supply, drunk, 'naturally' processed and fed back into the Thames so many times that anyone drinking a glass of tap water in central London was drinking a fluid that had already passed through seven other people on its way down stream.

I have drunk London tap water and that is what it tastes like.

The Welsh water tastes like, er, water.

My initial post didn't (and doesn't) refer to such a study. I wasn't aware that any such study had been done, never mind become newsworthy.

I was (and am) curious as to what water tastes like

Why assume mountain water tastes fizzy?? It would only be fizzy if you aerate it artificially. My water comes from an underground stream. The taste of water from mountains and streams would vary from area to area. It all depends on what minerals are in the ground.

I'll have to ask my father. Back when he worked for Coca-Cola, his job was doing research into the taste of water!

Water by itself doesn't taste of anything to speak of - try sipping some distilled water and the dominant sensation is temperature, not taste. But what people call 'water' is almost always chemically impure containing traces of minerals, gases, etc and those are what you taste. What the final taste is depends almost entirely on those impurities and they vary from region to region.

(Chemistry lessions @ 11 years old speaking here!)

Excellently put. Water (H2O) de-ionised, distilled into a clean glass vessel, has no taste and no smell. When such things as nitrates,nitrites, carbonates,sulphate-salts of calcium, iron, sodium etc get disolved in water, they influence the taste.Also many regions add fluorides( tooth protection-they say!)- and chlorine gas during the cleaning, sterilisation processes.These have an influence on the taste. My water tastes of coffee-sometimes it tastes of single belended malt whisky.Strange to think, but worth considering is that there are only a certain number of atoms available on our planet, they are recycled in the various carbon, nitrogen etc cycles. We probably are drinking water and eating food and may be built of atoms that were previously in a dinosaur!

I heard a story about a guy who bought some powdered water and didn't know what to add to it.
