With all this talk recently about the quality of water, I was reading some old articles on Hojo's website. In this article,[url][/url], hojo talks about how using charcoal filtered water with oxidation fired teapots can negatively affect the flavor of the tea. He says that the minerals in the charcoal are reduction fired and that it isn't good to use it with an oxidation fired teapot. Anybody have experience with this? Thoughts, comments or observations?
