Lu Yu On Water

Water from the mountains is the best, then river water, and finally well water...Water from slow-running streams, lakes with stony beds, or milk-white springs is the best mountain water."
(Lu Yu - referenced in Tea, by Lydia Gautier)

People may think that water isn't as important as the type of tea but water plays an important part of how the tea will turn out. Lu Yu was the author of the first book of tea and his advice must be worth something. Thanks for the post.
