The meaning of Taste in dream | Dream interpretation
In dreams, the sensation of taste suggests your likes, dislikes, desires and standards.
If something is not to your taste in your dreams, this suggests that it does not conform to your ideals. To have a bad taste in your mouth suggests that something in your life is not nourishing or satisfying you.
If you recognize that your surroundings are in good taste, this suggests that you appreciate beauty in life. In waking life, we often know what we do and do not like but in dreams this can sometimes be distorted for the purpose of highlighting the need for change. For example, if you find yourself liking someone or something you normally dislike, this suggests that you need to study the qualities of this person, object or place to see what it can teach you. Bear in mind that the words used to describe taste are also often used to describe feelings, for example bitter, sweet, sour.
Did you sit down to a lavish meal in your dreams and find that you had lost your appetite or could not taste anything? If so, then perhaps you have lost your appetite for something you once loved or relished. On the other hand, if you found yourself endlessly chewing, then perhaps you need to chew over some facts before you make an important decision in real life? In dreams being aware that you are swallowing something suggests either that you are holding back your emotions or that you need to take in something important in real life.
