Uncountable nouns are substances or concepts that we cannot count.

For example, we cannot count "water". We can count "bottles of water" or "liters of water", but we cannot count "water" itself. 

Here are some more uncountable nouns:

tea, milk, coffee, money, currency, love, happiness, fear, anger, beauty, music, art, rice, sugar, butter, knowledge, advice, information, news, electricity, power, gas etc…
