I prefer to use room temperature water instead of cold water. I feel that it is better for the digestive system. However, feel free to do what you feel.
When choosing water any water could work for the most part. I would avoid tap water, especially, if there is a history of your city's water source being contaminated. Spring or alkaline water are ideal healthy sources, but don’t stress about it. Please use what is healthy and available to you.
If making enough for later use, please place in a concealed container in the refrigerator. Store no longer then 2 days/ 48 hours. When ready to consume let sit out for 10 -20 minutes to come to room temperature or drink as is.
