May b it could b pungent taste would return back in few days
Clean your tongue properly, use mouth wash.
Put sugar crystals on the front part of the tongue. If you can feel the sweet taste, there is no problem it will return to normal once taste buds get sensitized again. If not, poke your anterior tongue with sharp instrument/ needle carefully. See if you can feel the sensation. If you can it is against ok. If not, you can contact me personally. THANK YOU.

Clean your tongue and do gargles twice a day.
