How I became a supertaster
This started as a joke between me and my fiancé when he showed me an article about supertasters and how to tell if you are one of them. A supertaster is a person who experiences the sense of taste with far greater intensity than average because of the huge amount of taste buds on his/her tongue. Some tell-tale signs include being a picky eater and being more sensitive to bitter tastes. He had joked that now he finally knows why I am such a picky eater. Well, it's true that I am very picky and am averse to certain types of bitter food, but that doesn't make me a supertaster, does it? We decided to stick out our tongues and examine it in the mirror (say aaahhhhh). Turns out I do have a lot of taste buds (at least more than him), and comparable to the pictures the article had indicated as an example of a supertaster tongue. Done! From that day on, I became a self-proclaimed supertaster who shall go around Hong Kong trying all kinds of food and documenting my adventures in this blog. Hope you enjoy my posts and pictures!
