I have met the phrase "acquire the taste" in the sentence "I have recently acquired the taste for olives." And, I do not understand very much. Could you explain to me the meaning of that phrase? Thanks in advance.

    Correct. Note that we normally talk about acquire a taste, since there are many different tastes.
    We say, for example, It's an acquired taste, not the acquired taste.
