Winter has two types of taste; inside and outside.
Soup. Hot soup, with more broth than substance. Gingerbread that sticks to your fingers when you pick it up and melts on your tongue. Hot choclate that warms your hands as you hold it and excites your taste buds as you swallow.
Cold water, the kind that tastes sharp and artificial. It tastes like spices, but not like cinnamon or sugar. Like cloves and parsnip. You can taste toothpaste mint, the kind that makes your throat sting and your eyes water.
Both tastes are a big part of winter; the cold outside, but also the warmth inside.
