As a genuine-article foodie, I love all flavortastes, though I have an aversion to overpowering sweetness, especially if it's artificial. Of those options, I'd have to go with sour since I like to drink vinegar (in proper quantities). Hengstenberg's my fave.
We need a spicy option.
Sweet > Salty > Other (bittersweet, spicy, savory, etc.) > Sour
If a dish were to have only one taste, I'd want it to be sweet. But too much sweetness kills me sometimes. So I try to have as many combinations of flavors as possible in my dishes.
Can schezuan be an option?
Spicy > Sour > Salty > Sweet > Bitter
If I had to choose only one for the rest of my life, it would be salty. As in, savoury.
