Each gram is in its own container and they were packed three containers to a bag. So I doubt it picked up anything. When I was doing my earlier searches, some people were saying it tasted medicinal, others that it tasted metalic, and other thought it tasted like mercurachrome.

Considering I didn't like the taste I think I'll refrain from using 'more'. I'd hate to ruin a whole pot of something.

After searching the internet, it would appear that saffron is another one of those seasonings that has a taste that differs quite widely from person to person, Like cilantro, you either love it or hate it. It is clearly a difference based on a person’s individual taste buds and their own palate. Here is a list of the different comments I found on the internet. What I found most interesting was all the different ways people described the taste. I slightly modified the wording of the last one to clean up the language used! LOL

a faint honey flavor
it tastes like the sea.
an earthy taste
a smokey taste
it’s a mixture of sweet and bitter
a bitter, honey-like taste
a bit flowery, sort of perfumey
something cozy and warm
burnt flowers
kind of dusty-tasting
air of staleness and old cupboard
Tastes like metal
gasoline/latex paint flavor
tastes medicinal
a monkey’s posterior
