  1. The irony is that China has some of the most polluted and toxic rivers and ground water anywhere in the world.

  2. I always choose tap over filtered and well water over tap. When I move to a new place one of the first things I do is check the water to see if it is palatable. I've lived in one place that the pipes gave the water a horrible taste, like dust. I always assumed it was the water transport system that imparted the difference in flavor until I started drinking well water and natural spring water straight out of the ground and learned that water from different places just tastes different. There is nothing more refreshing than fresh clear spring water.

  3. When they try to justify judging water they sound like that group of flat-earthers yelling, "WE'RE NOT CRAZY" trying to justify it to themselves.

  4. If you think water doesn't taste differently…. Drink Room Temp Tap Water, and Room Temp Voss. Huge difference in taste. And that's what this guys doing.
    Him, me and my dad. The only people who can taste differences in water. Hm

  5. I always thought it's just me tasting the flavor in water!
    At 7:17 I had that bottle in Taiwan, it's from the deepest sea where not polluted yet and the sea salt are extracted out. Seems like they won the gold medal, it's truly very good, tasted sweet and clear, if you're into it, gotta try it!

  6. "Please I am dying of thirst I haven't had a drink in 5 days!"

    Bottled water is too pure. Do you have any tap water?

  7. Well you invent a whole new tasting profession when you realize wine tasting is taken….this brought water to my eyes 😉
