The sensation, which is perceived as taste, is in most cases caused by flavours. These pass our mouth while chewing the food, pass our throat and get to the nasal cavity, where the flavour is perceived by the olfactory sense. While one has a cold, the nasal mucosa is swollen and smells are less noticeable. One can only taste salty, sweet, sour, bitter and umami.
