One tip to remember when choosing your flavour is personal taste. What you have eaten and drunk just before trying a new flavour can change how you perceive the taste. When trying out a new flavour for the first time, try not to eat or drink anything for a little while beforehand and this will help you decide if the flavour is the right one for you.
