It is possible that it was a improperly labeled green tea. Whatever it was it had a sickly sour taste like old green tea.
The point of this post is the aftereffect. Now every tea I have drank since tastes horrible. Has anyone had the effect of a bad tea ruining their pallet so all tea tastes awful? The only good thing about this is the taste will go away and I won't waste my money on that tea.
Yes, that has happened to me before.
I can't think of an instance where a taste wouldn't leave my mouth though. Usually heavy pesticides or additives are the culprit for me. I have had some situations where my tongue can't recalibrate for a day or an afternoon.
