  1. Hmmm… Maybe some kind of flavonoid that interacts with the taste buds in an ionic fashion?? I once wrote a column on flavonoids, so that’s all I can think of regarding tastes and flavours. XD!!

  2. As for 🍋 lemon it has citric acid in it, and acid are sour in taste…

    And for Tamarind it has tartaric acid which is responsible for it’s sourness.😊
