Answer:

That the lemon and lime juices were most acidic. These juices would pucker the tongue even if you sweetened them.

Explanation:

Not so long ago, approx. 150 years, a chemist would report on the taste of a new compound he synthesized (I write #"he"# because I hope a woman wouldn't be so stupid!). Most of the things we eat that taste good, are in fact slightly acidic. See this older answer.
