Reverse osmosis water filters: great water for tea

More and more offices are installing on-site water filters, such as this reverse-osmosis system (which I've seen in action), to replace those huge bottles of water that have to be trucked acrossed the country and shoulder-carried into the office.

It makes sense: Why burn all that gas and diesel transporting water all over the land when you can utilize the tap water that most homes and office buildings already receive?

Some of the better bottled waters may taste better than this reverse-osmosis water, but as far as brewing green tea is concerned, it's still a huge improvement over ordinary tap water. As I never tire of saying, water is the life blood of tea.

I haven't read anything about what reverse-osmosis filtration systems remove and don't remove, versus the content of your better bottled water, but if anyone else has, please drop me a line.
