Sharp, tart, flavoursome.


Most of the things that we consume that taste good are slightly acidic. For example, take cheese, wines, beer, tomatoes, citrus fruit, all of which are acidic.

On the other hand, the most basic thing that we eat is quite probably egg white. The soapy bitterness of egg white is quite characteristic of a base.
