Temperature varies the sensitivity of our taste and tactile receptors. High hot or high cold temperatures make our receptors less sensitive. There is a golden zone of temperature range where our receptors become most awake. This golden zone and peak also vary between each receptor; our hot tactile receptors peak sensitivity at about 45 degrees celsius. Our sweetness receptors peak around 37 degrees, and salt sensitivity peaks closer to 32 degrees.
