FAQs

What proof is there that the water is really 10 million years old?

In the 1960’s researchers dated the lake at 18 – 20 million years old.  More recent studies, from the 1990’s, date the age of the lake at 9-12 million years

Why is the water trapped in the bottom of the lake?

Pressure caused by the depths of the water causes a slightly denser water at the lower level.  This coupled with the relatively uniform temperature of the water keeps the deeper water from circulating. 

Is the water safe to drink?

Tanzamaji has passed all of the Tanzanian FDA requirements and surpasses WHO standards.

Why is there a ``best before`` date on the label?

It is mandated by the government of Tanzania.  It is not required in USA. 

Why is the water so expensive?

This water is rare, expensive to harvest, and supports clean water initiatives and economic growth in a developing area. 

Rarity equates with value, and this is the rarest water on earth.  It is found in only one location, and it is very difficult to obtain.  The process to do so is patented.  It is packaged in a beautiful glass bottle befitting its status.  We are committed to processing and packaging it in Tanzania in order to provide jobs there, and a portion of the revenue supports free clean water projects in Tanzania.

Is the water FDA approved?

Yes, by TZ FDA which is acknowledged by US FDA

Are you looking for distributors?

Yes.

Where can I buy it?

Soon to be available from distributors. A list is coming soon to our website.

What does the water taste like?

The water has a subtle, smooth, natural taste.  Based on the fine water guide, Tanzamaji is characterized as follows:

Virginality:  superior

Minerality: Medium (340 TDS)

Vintage:  >10 million years

Orientation:  pH 8.2 (alkaline)

Hardness:  Very hard (Calcium/Magnesium 245)

Balance – Still 

How is this water different than the top bottled waters I can buy?

Tanzamaji Prehistoric is very rare water with extraordinary purpose.  There is no other known source of water like Tanzamaji Prehistoric Water.  This water has been undisturbed and protected by the natural forces of nature.     It has not gone through the evaporation/rain cycle in 10 million years.  It has never been exposed to pesticides, pollutants, waste products, etc. When you drink this water, you will be tasting water classified under the fine waters classification system as superior Virginality which reflects how protected the water has been from its surroundings. It is determined by the water’s level of nitrate. 

In addition to its rarity, Tanzamaji Prehistoric water supports clean water initiatives and economic growth in a developing country. 

What do the characteristics of this water mean in terms of taste?

Tanzamaji Prehistoric water is naturally smooth with a subtle taste.  A pH higher than 7.0 means that the water is alkaline, as opposed to acidic. Tanzamaji® has a pH of 8.2. That means the water will taste softer/smoother.
