    Default tang (n)

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the word in bold in the following sentences?

    The faint tang of ocean brine blew softly through the room.

    tang = the taste experience when a savory condiment is taken into the mouth

    As it blew through, I'd take it as the smell and not the taste here.
