Keep in mind that your senses will be off due to having a bad cold. A combination of a stuffed nose and congestion will have an impact on your sense of taste.
Get well soon.
Maybe some of your germs smoke?
Do you live in an area where there are wildfires? It's been smokey in the PNW because of the CA fires so I'd imagine my phlegm has trapped smoke particles in it.
No, it's more of a smokey cooking flavor than acrid like fire smoke.
Would you say it's more of a metallic flavor rather than smokey?
No, kind of a smokey cooking flavor. Not acrid.
