Tea + water = balance.
Well, do I need to tell you that tea is nearly 100% water? No. But I am sure that you would want a clear understanding of what’s in your water, so that your tea is tasting good and is beneficial to your health.
I will try to take you back 200 years and compare the water back then to water now.
As you already know, we are mostly made out of water. The most bioavailable vitamins and minerals are also absorbed with help of water. As a matter of fact, our body liquifies every piece of food we take in, so that it can be distributed and absorbed by body cells.
There are too many places all over China, where glaciers are still not effected by all the pollution created with rapid industrialization. So, when those glaziers melt, they create the most amazing water for tea brewing. Some wealthy families are known to have built tea-houses near the glaciers, just so that they can experience the purest way of tea consumption, as it was the case in all times before modern civilization. Same, absolutely virgin, waters are found in tropical forests of Latin America, in mountain of Chile, Canada and some other places of which are far from mega cities and ‘industrial parks’.
The reason water is so pure in those places is because it went through one of two restoration processes. One is freezing and thawing, the other is evaporation and precipitation. In both of the processes, water releases all structural and informational baggage. Every drop of that water is restored and rejuvenated to its purest form on a molecular level as well as metaphysical level.
Evaporation and distillation
When water is warmed up enough, it turns into gas, with that transition from one state to another – it sheds any other chemicals, minerals and anything else you can imagine. I am not absolutely convinced that evaporated bleach makes a good glass of water, but we are essentially talking about evaporation from oceans and large land masses.
People always did and still capture rainwater for drinking, it’s absolutely necessary in some parts of the world. The question is the dust that water brings down as it travels through air or hits a surface of the rain trap. If you live in Hawaii, the rain there is drastically different from rain in Moscow, Beijing and Los Angeles. As most of us reading this do not use our rainwater for drinking, it brings me to the next point.
Filter, Freeze and Thaw
Living in New York City for all my life made me aware of the quality of water coming out of our water pipes, that have been laid before the great depression, I started filtering our drinking and cooking water. While this is true, New York City Water is probably the cleanest tap water in the world.
Any water that an average US household gets, passes through pipes and a process of disinfection. If you live on a 5th floor or above, your water has passed through many valves, booster pumps and it picks up more baggage along the way than if it would be sitting in a lake. From purely mechanical and chemical, to vibrations and information stored in its structure along the way, it’s important to reset at least some of qualities water has when in its pure state.
Everyone that cares for their health has heard about filtering water, whether it’s filtering from heavy metals and chlorine or all the way over to filtering out glyphoside and other chemical elements that trigger severe hormonal disbalance in bodies of men and women. Whether you spent $50 or $1000 on your filter, it’s a worthy investment.
I have learned from a friend of ours that freezing and thawing water is important to reset water’s taste and other qualities. As I have experimented with that technique, I have come to realize that thawed water water tastes so much better. I got two deep glass cooking trays with lids and placed into the freezer over night, took them out in the morning and enjoyed a glass of water after coming home from work.
The taste was truly magical. I don’t know whether it was all the attention and time that I have invested in the water, or was it something else that mainstream science fails to recognize. The water I drank that day changed my view on water and opened my eyes on how blessed we are to be living in a world where we are able to recreate pure water as our ancestors drank.
