This is not necessarily a self-contradiction. There could be two definitions of taste in play here. To put it another way, "The soup was flavorless. I did sample it to see if I would like it."
Yip, but it would only be understood if you put it this other way.
Or if you put it this way: "I didn't taste the soup although I did taste the soup."
I read what you are saying but I don't read what you are saying.
