“Metallic, like ink or blood”
Certified water flavour standard used to train professional tasters to recognize and scale the intensity of metallic character.
Metallic characters are contributed to water either from natural ground and soil conditions or from electrochemical or microbe-mediated corrosion of cast iron pipework. Ferrous compounds generally impart a metallic mouthfeel to water, but high levels may lead to discolouration of affected water.
