Molds are not directly related with changes in the taste sense. Mold infection can cause allergic reactions like runny nose, sneezing, coughing, irritation in eyes, mucus membrane of mouth, ear and throat,  fever, rashes, headache and fatigue. Allergic reaction due to molds toxicity which cause irritation on mucus membrane of mouth and runny nose and sneezing or upper respiratory infections can alter the taste sense. So, black molds might change taste sense indirectly.
Other factors which change taste sense are upper respiratory infection, injury to head, exposure to insecticides, side effects of some medicines, and cancer treatment with radiotherapy on head or face can cause changes in the taste sense.
