Water Filters for Making Tea
The best tasting water makes the best tasting tea and using filtered water is the easiest way to make your tea taste better.
Instead of using tap water, go with filtered water whenever you make tea.
Tea Sommelier’s Tip: By removing impurities and chemicals from your water, filters allow the tea to have a more clear and consistent flavor.
What to Look for When Buying a Water Filter
- Filtration rate
Check for the maximum filtration rate to make sure that your filter can produce the right amount of water for your daily use. If you consume a lot of water, you need to make sure your filter can handle it.
- Installation and operation cost
Some are as simple as a pitcher that you fill at the sink while others might require professional installation and difficult cartridge replacement, so look for a filter that you can easily maintain.
- Replacement filter cost
Check the price of the filter replacement before buying so you’re aware of the cost per year since you need to replace the filter every 3-6 months.
- Filter change indicator
It’s hard to remember how often filter cartridges need to be replaced, so it’s helpful to buy a water filter with an indicator.

Questions You May Have
When you buy a water filter system, it usually comes with one cartridge to get the filter set up. After that you need to buy the replacements separately.
Sometimes. A TDS meter measures the amount of total dissolved solids in your water, and some of the nicer water filters come with one but not always. If yours doesn’t come with one, there are some inexpensive options you can buy.
How to clean your water filter will depend on what kind of water filter you choose to buy. In general, the best way to clean a water filter is to remove the filter itself and clean that with hot, soapy water when replacing the cartridge.
