BIBO - The perfect cup of tea

8th August 2011 Print

Tea is one of the most popular drinks in Britain and according to the UK Tea Council - 66 percent of the British population drink tea every day, with 60.2 billion cups consumed each year. Tea is also a powerful antioxidant that helps soak up free radicals that have been implicated in life threatening diseases such as cancer, heart disease and strokes. To make a superior tasting cup of tea, filtered water is the only option. The limescale and chlorine that is found in unfiltered water can hugely alter both taste and aroma, as the hardness of the water does not allow the tea to dissolve and infuse fully into the water.

BIBO, the new counter top hot and cold water dispenser provides purified boiling water for as little as 15 pence per day. The newly launched water filter unit, dispenses filtered water for cold and hot drinks at the touch of a button and eliminates the need for a kettle, helping to produce great tasting, pure water for tea drinkers at the touch of a button.

The BIBO water dispenser simply connects to the home water mains supply and the water is instantly available heated or chilled. It can provide 7 litres (approximately 30 cups) of chilled water and 15 litres (approximately 60 cups) of hot water each hour and the water is filtered several times to guarantee purity and taste. This filtering will eliminate unwanted substances that cause the altering in the taste of the tea, allowing a fully developed flavour.

Produced by Oxfordshire based company, BIBO Ltd, the colourful BIBO water filter has been specifically designed for UK kitchens. Slightly larger than the average kettle, it’s available in eight stunning colours – silver, black, cream, red, blue, orange, yellow and green and fits stylishly underneath standard kitchen units. The BIBO water costs £363 and is available to buy from This includes installation, comprehensive one year warranty and two filters.
