This question already has an answer here:
There is a particular taste that I could never quite translate in English. It is not bitter, although it sometimes occurs with it. The best example is eating a raw quince fruit. The mouth and tongue get a sort of dry feeling. Similar taste can be experienced with some persimmon fruit, and unripe plums. I know the word in French (âpre) and Bulgarian (стипцив). Google translates these as rough, but that somehow seems unlikely. Any ideas?
