Taste Buds

I find this a bit interesting as over the past couple of years as I grown into my 30s, I’ve become more fond of tart foods, like rhubarb, cranberries and limes/lemons. I stumbled upon this article from ages ago from theguardian about changing taste buds and ageing. It is a rather interesting read as it groups tasters into four specific groups children, teenagers, adults and old age saying that children have the most taste buds and by adulthood about a third of these taste buds exist. If you have time take a look at the article. Sure, I’ve liked other sour food for ages like all types of pickles and other soured food but I find it interesting that tart has become one of the flavors that I actively want.
