Whilst staying with a friend who lives somewhere with very hard water, we got used to making tea with bottled, still, water as the tap water was too hard to make a good cuppa.
One day, we ran out of still water, but had some bottles of carbonated water.
Having previously ruined a kettle when I was a kid with the 'genius' idea of boiling milk in there I was reluctant to risk ruining his kettle to see if you could make tea using the carbonated water. Once bitten, twice shy as they say.
So would this have worked out ok? ie would anything have been damaged? would boiling water have spurted out of the kettle?
And could I have made a good cuppa from carbonated water, or would it have worked but tasted terrible (no dissolved oxygen?)?
