In episode 19 of Cigar Sense Podcast, we propose you another sensory exercise that will help develop your palate. We’ll talk with a different perspective on how to differentiate aromas from tastes and tactile perceptions. You’ll also hear about the Sour-Bitter confusion, of which it is good to be aware.
The ingredients and directions for another sensory exercise:
Salty: dissolve 1 tbsp of plain table salt into 1 cup of water
Sweet: dissolve 1 tbsp of white sugar into 1 cup of water
Sour: dissolve ½ tbsp of citric acid into 1 cup of water. You can combine the juice of 1 lemon or 2 limes with ½ cup of water instead
Bitter: dissolve ½ tbsp of alum powder into 1 cup of water OR combine ¼ cup of water and ¼ cup of tonic water
If you listen to the episode you will have all the information you need on this exercise, which you can very easily do home. It is another step to help you identify and distinguish the various basic tastes. Enjoy it and let us know if it helped you!
