Flavor Tripping

I want to go flavor tripping. Here’s what you do. You eat this berry, this “miracle berry” from east Africa. It numbs your tastebuds to sour and bitter tastes for a few hours. Then, you eat stuff that normally would be too sour or bitter for you to enjoy. Raw lemons. Tabasco sauce. Dark beer (which I actually like just fine normally). Cheap tequila tastes like lemonade.

You can order the fruit here. The guy will even sell you the seed to try and grow your own, although I doubt that a fruit that grows naturally in Ghana (ain’t none higher!) would do well in the desert.
