When I am mindless, almonds taste like powdery woody cardboard.

When I am mindful, I notice a teasing hint of sweetness in the taste of this tear-drop shaped nut.

When I am mindless, dandelion root tea tastes bitter and uninteresting.

When I am mindful, I notice a shadow of something cozy and roasted in the flavor of the tea.

Same foodstuffs, different experiences.

Conclusion: mindlessness and mindfulness have a different taste.
