In European countires, the drinking water is hard, while soft water is drunk in Jpan.

When I boiled water in Holland, a white substance settels at the bottom of kettle.

I don't know the substance is called in English, maybe lime,or calcareous.

I had to often remove it, otherwise, the faucet gets white, and the shower is clogged.

However, when it comes to brewing tea by hard water, the taste is better than that by soft water.

On the other hand, the taste of dashi, Japanese soupe that made from dried fish or kelp is very weak by hard water.
