      We would get along well lol! How do people not taste the difference between waters? The well water at my house is incredible, while my grandma's is horrendous. When I went to sleep camp, the water was so good I filled my water bottle and sipped it throughout the week after I went home. Also, at camp we went white water rafting and we got to fill our bottles in a spring, that was very different tasting as well.

Tap water is fine if it comes from the right place, but bottling it and selling it at a "premium" price is absolutely ridiculous.

It’s so cool to me to see Martin putting fact to what I’ve been experiencing my whole life and how passionate he is about it. I’ve had a rough couple of days and this video plus Martin’s energy is just what I needed :)

    I actually love this guy. He's just really passionate abt his interest, and even though it's niche and not something most people notice or think about, he wants to share his interest with the world, and he has! I (as well as about 25% of people) have extra taste buds per area on my tongue, and I've always noticed the differences in water types. Everyone else thinks I'm weird for being specific about the water I drink. I refuse to drink Dasani (as most sane people should), my favorite bottled water is Poland Spring. It's cool to see that there's other people who actually care about this stuff, and to see someone who's so passionate about it he's educating people. I think he's my new hero

I always knew waters tasted different but didn't think about it much. Water is such a fascinating thing, thanks to Martin for sharing his passion with all of us and talking about the scams in the industry. Great video all you guys!

    I totally get what he is saying! North Scotland has really good ‘fresh’ water, if you down south a bit the water tastes different. It’s warmer out the tap and tastes like chlorine. So I can imagine water from different contrived taste completely different

    I think it's also important to keep in mind that becoming a "certified water sommalier" like Martin Riese costs $2.2k USD and requires only 2-3 months worth of education.
    Please do NOT reference these individuals as qualified authorities on health issues or the biological implications of minerals and water additives. They are not.

      I do this now since 15 years, I received my degree as a water sommelier in 2010, but that does not mean I was done learning in 2010. I study and learn every day about water, I received the O-1 visa for the United Stated in 2011 for extraordinary ability on my knowledge of water. So yeas, you can become a water sommelier in my very own Academy now online, but that doesn't mean you are Martin Riese afterwards 😉

  • Miron Andreas

    The important takeaway here is to be sure that you *are drinking plenty of water*
    Being a "water sommalier" is great and all, but it isn't necessary. Not everyone in the world has access to clean drinking water, and many of us who DO, still do not consume an adequate amount!
    I have a biology degree, and currently working on a medical science degree. At the end of the day, no- it really doesn't matter whether your water is distilled or raw spring water. Water is water and it WILL hydrate you, regardless.
    The mineral content does little more than slightly alter taste; you *should* be getting adequate mineral consumption through a balanced diet. And if you aren't, well, unfortunately, mineral water still won't make up for that dietary problem.
    So don't put too much stake into which waters are spring waters, and which are municipal in origin. Just find what YOU like, and drink plenty of it! 🙂

    • Martin Riese

      I agree with you that every water will hydrate you, but the World Health Organizations published studies about the danger of consuming distilled or low TDS waters over a long time period. When it comes to purified water, I am not against purified or filtered water at all, its great to do this at home, but I do not like the idea that a company can create a marketing story and sells you processed tap at the grocery store for a premium amount.

No one? OK I'll start. You stuffed up the audio you should listen to your video before you post it. There, now my day feels fulfilled. Now to find someone else online to make a fool of. Gotta go, looks like someone on Facebook used a "there" instead of "their".

    One of my favorite bottled waters in Poland is Muszynianka, it’s sparkling with around 1800 TDS, it’s pretty salty and the bubbles are super tiny and don’t like “sting” on the tongue, my go to waters as a kid were Nałęczowianka and Cisowianka, actually from the same town, both still, 650 and 740 TDS respectively. I used to refuse one specific water, Żywiec Zdrój which is 230 TDS and would tolerate but dislike one with 320 TDS, I hated them because they were overwhelmingly bitter for me. Over the years I’ve become more acclimated to lower TDS water because I’ve started drinking tap water from a filter (because pipes are often rusty and gross where I live and I think it might be dangerous to drink tap straight and I wanted to reduce my amount of waste) and that reduces it quite a bit. Now I actually dislike Nałęczowianka and Cisowianka because I find them too sweet and bland and tend to go for the more extreme ends of the spectrum. I never knew there was a number to assign to all of these thoughts and feelings I had about these waters and it was such a big part of my childhood. I should’ve looked into it at some point but never bothered I guess. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    26:05 I actually remember drinking water from a spring near a church that was blessed maybe by Pope John Paul II (he was from here, Poland) or something else, I don’t remember exactly. It was pretty tasty and I was a water snob as a kid, there were some brands that I refused to drink because they were too bitter for me.

    See I was against my mans Martin at first but in reality he isn't against tap water just corporations selling tap water for a mark up which point! Down with the capitalistic society indeed. Drink your tap don't buy it. Also, water does have a taste. School fountain water and my tap taste so different (one tastes basically like bleach *school*). It ain't crazy to say there's better tasting water out there.

    You can totally make water with medium to high TDS. Us home brewers do it all the time. Check out a brewing store, and you can pick up the minerals used to emulate water from all over the world.
    I usually go for Burton on Trent, or the Guinness water profile. Costs pennies, add it to distilled water, boil, then chill.
    Oh, and the "green raw water guy" is gonna kill someone some day. (He was not featured)
    Oh, and I once saw a guy who could blind taste the difference between the waters from all the great lakes. It was fascinating.

    I'm actually so glad you two gave him a chance, unlike all the famous hosts and celebs! I'm from Rome, Italy and different tastes in waters have always been a regular for me. Here it's common for people to "not liking" some type/brand of water, mostly when moving between regions. For example, Rome's water is full of iron, many can't drink it, coming from outside, but to someone who's lived there their whole life, this is "regular" water. When I go to Tuscany during Summer, I absolutely CANNOT drink their tap water, like the Acqua Panna you showed in your vid is absolutely foul to me!
    So when I started the video I was a bit disheartened because I thought you would only make fun of the idea since you weren't accustomed to it, but I once again found myself pleasantly surprised by your kindness and open-mindedness
