What is it?

Water but black.

What’s special about it?

It has fulvic minerals which give it that interesting hue. Also a very chic bottle which is a key component of your fancy water purchase. There’s writing that isn’t visible when it’s full of black water. It’s kind of like one of those heat change mugs. It’s also alkaline, ‘alkaline’ is the new buzz word when it comes to food. It’s also meaningless because if the ph levels in your body are out whack you have problems that can’t be solved by buying fancy water.

What does it taste like?

Descriptions range from ‘slightly metallic’ to ‘slightly dirty’.

Where can I get it?

Whole Foods, Selfridges and if your office uses BaxterStory they might stock it. £2.00.
