Eat the gooseberries as is!!

Take a bite of it then drink a sip of water… Water will be flavored and gives you a sweet taste to your mouth!

It is the best way to be encouraged for drinking more water. It is a great idea for children who don’t like plain water taste! 😀

why??

Initially, Amla tastes sour. This sensation, among other things, is due to protons. When we drink water, the protons are washed away but the taste buds will probably take some time to return to its initial form, which gives a sensation of a brief sweet taste:)
