Ways to Jazz up the Flavor of Water

We at Chanson Water love the taste of alkaline pH 9.5 water produced by our water ionizers. Taste may vary by source water, although one customer from Riverside County CA (whose tap water is ranked the #4 WORST in America) loves the taste of her ionized water!

However, we recognize that drinking nothing but water day in and day out can become a bit tedious at times. But instead of reaching for acidic drinks like coffee, soda, black tea, processed “fruit” juice, sports and energy drinks or alcohol, we offer the following (mostly alkaline) suggestions as additives to your ionized water:

  • Crushed fresh mint leaf
  • Lemon wedges
  • Lime wedges
  • Cucumber slices
  • Splash of coconut water
  • Slice of ginger
  • Green tea (sweeten with Stevia)
  • Cinnamon essential oil
  • Grapefruit juice or sweet grapefruit essential oil
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Fresh lemongrass
  • Lavender
  • Rose petals
  • Coconut water ice cubes
  • Flavored Stevia drops (we like the Sweet Leaf brand)
  • True Lemon, True Lime, True Grapefruit and/or True Orange crystallized substitue

The following are not alkaline additives but should be fine for an occasional treat:

  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Kiwi slices
  • Orange slices
  • Raspberries
  • Fresh pineapple chunks

And here are some combinations to try:

  • Ginger, grapefruit
  • Cucumber, strawberries, lavender, lemon
  • Lime juice, lemon juice, raspberries, mint leaves
  • Rose petals, fresh lemon thyme, lemon juice
  • Fresh lemongrass, fresh Thai basil
  • Lemon, ginger, cinnamon
  • Lime, cucumber, fresh thyme leaves
  • Strawberry, kiwi
  • Lavender mint

We hope you find this helpful and inspiring. Feel free to experiment and comment with your favorites or your own ideas! Visit for more information on alkaline ionized water.
