Cool Yeti Rambler = Metalic Taste?

Like the title says I have a 30 oz Yeti Rambler for two weeks now cup holds ice fine no issues there, problem is my beverage takes on a Metalic Taste. I drink sweat tea out of the rambler exclusively with ice. I refill the tea probably three to four times a day, top of ice once. It just taste weird after sometime. I can't really explain it but a Metalic type taste. Something just not right. I have washed it out in between use after One to two days just in case the funk persist from overuse...no luck there.

So any of you die hard salt life yeti rambler yellowfin driving hull truthers have this mysterious problem?

Btw the admiral conquers my suspicions. Cameras broke, no pics

I demand that you stop saying anything negative about a Yeti product.

The double wall plastic tumblers are $10 with no metallic taste and work better anyway. But you don't get a yeti sticker.

Interaction between your fillings and the SS.
Some SS drink flasks have put plastic around the rim to avoid that.
Buddy of mine has no issue with ice water but cannot drink Rum n Ginger out of it.
I do not have an issue with iced tea n Vodka in mine.
But mine isn't Yeti.

It'll probably cheaper for you to change out all your fillings to the non-metallic variety instead of tossing out your Yeti. Contact your nearest dentist to solve problem.

At least it's nothing serious.

99% of the time NO metallic taste

but every once and a while yes but nothing consistent enough to pinpoint it ...

Might be when the water chemistry is just a tidge off ...

Yes, could not tolerate it so I gave mine away. Water, soft drinks, mixed drinks, it did not matter.

What you are tasting is the the chemical that keeps you buying the product. Keep drinking and I see a Yeti Tundra 420 in your future.

Are you using the lid?

I get a funky metallic taste occasionally if I'm not using the lid.

I have the same issue with my stainless Starbucks mug. Slight electric field, perhaps similar to a sharks ampullae of Lorenzini.

I say all of that sheepishly and with my head down.

They don't work better. That's a fact.

They did, before they made/sold the rambler. I have one. Again, it's a tervis tumbler, not bad, but does not hold a candle to the rambler in any way, shape, or form.
