How to use binchotan

Kishu Binchotan water filter

Prepare

Free your binchotan from its 100% recycled and recyclable packaging. Put binchotan in boiling water and boil for 5 minutes to sterilise. Remove with tongs and cool.

Bottle

Slide binchotan into your favourite bottle or jug with care. Don’t drop it – binchotan might chip. Fill up with tap water. Use minimum of 60 grams of binchotan per liter of water. More binchotan will speed up filtration.

Wait

Leave binchotan in water for at least 5 hours to filter and alkalise. For best results, leave binchotan to work its magic overnight.

Enjoy

Enjoy clean, soft, delicious, alkalising water! Our independent lab test achieved a pH level of 8.9. Try brewing a pot of tea with your binchotan water, and savour the difference.

Maintain

Keep refilling your bottle with tap water for up to 2 months. Boil binchotan every 3 weeks to refresh and remove build-up.
