Alkaline reduced water retains its alkalinity even when boiled. But it is recommended to drink it cold because boiling releases hydrogen ion, which decreases deoxidization.

What about mixing it with tea or coffee?
It is recommended that lesser amount, maybe 1/2 of tea is used or soaked teabag for shorter time because alkaline reduced water will extract more tea ingredients. Green tea is extracted easily even in cold water, so it's an ideal drink for summer.

Wouldn't alkaline water neutralize acid in the stomach?
Alkaline water will not neutralize acid in the stomache. Alkaline water ideal for drinking has pH of 7.5~10, and acid in teh stomach has pH of 4. Acidity of stomach acid is 1/100, and alkalinity of alkaline water is 1/1,000,000. Obviously stomach acid is over 1,000 times more concentrated than alkaline water. In order to neutralize 3 liters of stomach acid that's produced a day, you'd have to drink 100times, ie., about 3,000 liters of alkaline water.
