Have you ever wanted to describe the taste of the food or drink that you’re having but you just couldn’t find the right word, fellas? Well, today I have collected some adjectives to describe tastes that are more specific than sweet, sour, salty, or bitter.
Astringent: sour or bitter with dry and chalky sensation, making your mouth pucker, e.g. the taste of an unripe banana and tea.
Bittersweet: tasting bitter and sweet at the same time.
Brackish: (especially of water) slightly salty and unpleasant. Brackish water is not pure and probably contains some salt.
Fiery: producing a burning sensation, such as the taste of curries.
Syrupy: thick, sweet, and sticky like the taste of undiluted syrup.
Watery: weak or pale; overly diluted, e.g., watery milk.
Tangy: pleasantly sharp such as the flavor of lemon juice.
Pungent: having a sharp rather unpleasant flavor like chili pepper or garlic.
There you go, fellas. Do you have more words to add to the list? Don’t hesitate to drop a comment!
