How does a táami berry change the way that things taste?

táami berry contains a protein called Miraculin that coats our taste buds upon contact and causes the sweet taste bud receptors to fire when they encounter food and drinks that contain acidity (i.e.; sour and bitter flavors). Therefore, for 30 minutes up to an hour, many sour and bitter foods will taste sweet and delicious.

How do I use táami berry?

Whether you are using the crushed táami berry or the frozen berries, make sure to swoosh around in your mouth for 30 seconds to a minute to ensure that you’ve covered your entire tongue. Wait another minute to ensure that you leave time for the effect to kick in and then enjoy! Sour and bitter foods and drinks work best. We recommend trying lemon, lime, grapefruit, strawberry, green apples, goat cheese, greek yogurt, Guinness, and vodka or tequila with lemon or lime.

How long does táami berry last?

How should I store táami berry?  Will it go bad?  How long will it last?

The frozen berries are extremely perishable and must be kept in the freezer at all times until you decide to use them or they may spoil and lose their effect. They will stay good for up to 3 months from when you receive them but for best results, use within the first 2-4 weeks. The crushed táami berry is much more stable and can last for up to a year if kept refrigerated or frozen. For best results use within the first 3 months. Do not let your frozen or crushed táami berry warm above 100° Fahrenheit.
