Tau Spring WaterTAU
Taking its name from an ancient Welsh word for ‘to be silent’, Tau Spring Water is specifically designed for outlets such as designer hotels, restaurants, bars and cafes where color may not be appropriate but purity, quality and elegance are essential. Launched in 2003, Tau Spring Water is produced by internationally renowned Tŷ Nant Spring Water Ltd. which is situated in the West Wales county of Ceredigion.

Map of source of TAUThe Company was founded in 1989 and moved to its current purpose-built factory at the site of the source in 1996. The facility was extended in 2002. The factory is situated within 300 acres of pastureland and forestry. The land is maintained to organic standards, and the evergreen conifer forestry is being replaced in stages with a more environmentally friendly broadleaf wood. Tau is bottled at the source which comes from deep beneath the ancient Cambrian Mountains of Wales, an area of mudstone, siltstone and sandstone that is protected and organically managed. Tau Spring Water was created to satisfy the need for a contemporary clear glass bottled water. Tau's chic minimalist styling and monochromatic labeling creates a strikingly contemporary statement. A well-balanced water with a light, refreshing taste and a slightly sweet note. At 30.5 mg/l of Calcium, 12.2 mg/l of Magnesium, and 13.5 mg/l of Silica, the water has a distinct quality, and it manages to deliver the goods with a neutral pH of 7.2, a very low-TDS (208), and negligible Nitrates. Tau Spring Water, is available in both still and softly sparkling variants.

Florida Considering A Deposit Law

Ten states currently employ “bottle bills” or “deposit laws”. These states collect between 5 and 15 cents/ bottle. A senate bill recently introduced in the Florida legislature would call for between 20 and 30 cents per bottle. This is expected to receive large opposition from consumers and distributors. The bill calls for 20% to be given to the retailer, as an incentive to muffle their complaints. States that collect the deposits see tens of millions of dollars in unredeemed deposits each year.

In The Learning Corner

Is PURE Water Really Clear?

First, you will rarely see pure water as it is not found in a natural setting. The everyday water you see contains dissolved minerals and often suspended materials. But, for practical purposes, if you fill a glass from your faucet the water will look colorless. The water is in fact not colorless; even pure water is not colorless, but has a slight blue tint to it, best seen when looking through a long column of water. The blueness in water is not caused by the scattering of light, which is responsible for the sky being blue. Rather, water blueness comes from the water molecules absorbing the red end of the spectrum of visible light.
