@Koreakimchi: Flavor has to do with the tongue AND aroma (smell). When you eat a peach, you know it's a peach because of how it smells and how it taste. So if you were eating a piece of candy, and the smell and taste reminded you of a peach, you would think "This candy is peach flavored." Or "This candy taste LIKE peach." "To taste like____" has the same meaning as "___ flavored"
@Koreakimchi: So if you breakdown @pinkfreud: sentence "Because of its bitter flavor, coffee is an acquired taste for many people," bitter describes the TASTE of coffee, because when you drink coffee and it touches your tongue, your mind thinks "this is bitter."
@Koreakimchi: When you SMELL coffee, and the scent reaches your nose, your mind does not think "this is bitter," because your nose isn't tasting the drink. Instead, your mind thinks "this smells nutty like coffee."
@Koreakimchi: However, if you were drinking a drink and its smell AND taste reminded you of coffee (bitter and nutty), your mind would think "This drink is coffee-flavored." Or "This drink taste like coffee." OR "This drink has a bitter flavor like coffee" (the drink's FLVOR is bitter because it SMELLS and TASTES like coffee)
@Koreakimchi: when you use acquired taste like this, it means that when you're first exposed to art or someone's personality/music/beauty/fashion, chances are you won't immediately like their personality, or music, or fashion choices, but there's a chance you will grow to really like it or appreciate them.
