Hard Water

What do you think is this?

Did you say coffee?

You are wrong.

This is a cup of tea made with tap water of Piraeus.

I brought this tea from UK and it used to make a pale tea-colour tea, but here it turns into coffee like dark brown colour.

In the area I used to live in UK, the water comes from north Wales and it is very soft and pleasant. I think most of the people drink tap water there.

In Piraeus, water is hard and if you don't dry up the glasses after washing, the water leave limescale stains. For steam iron, many people buy special water from supermaket.

The unappetising colour of tea should come from the quality of the water here. I should drink more coffee perhaps?
