I would recommend these filters in lieu of a Brita filter. The water tastes better, and less plastic-y

A friend gave me a piece of Kishu Binchotan, so I gave it a try. It makes my tap water taste so sweet and clear that as a result I'm now drinking more water.

I ordered the large Kishu Binchotan (7.5"H x 1 .75"W) & use it in my little night carafe next to my bed. Its perfect because I can just refill with tap water & leave it sitting out for a couple of hours & have purified drinking water. Not only that, I also get many compliments on the look of the beautiful white charcoal in my glass carafe. It looks very exotic & organic. These smaller pieces would also be just beatiful. I am planning to order the cube next for air purification in my fridge. Definitely recommended. This stuff is HARD TO FIND here in the states (as it is made in Japan) & popularly sold in Europe. Hopefully it will catch on here soon.

I think I am fairly picky about my water. I mainly drink water, nothing else, usually. But I tasted no difference. Maybe this means my tap water doesn't have a lot of chlorine or other impurities!

I think that these filters are awesome. They work exactly as they are advertised. I just place mine in a clear blue one gallon jug. I only use one long piece or two small pieces. I boil it first to reactivate it then I place it in the jug with the water. The water turns out nice and sweet with a slight natural mineral taste. I highly recommend. They do need to be changed every 3 months.
