This is so true. But I had not done that in the last 20 years. Thanks for kindling such a long long ago memory. Nellikkai (Gooseberry) creates such an amazing effect on the palate. The same thing happens when eating something called "sea cucumber"; something that can be harvested from estuary waters. After chewing it, and swallowing, drinking a glass of water makes the water taste sweet, as well as colder than it should be. Modifies the palate so much !!
