metal taste and odor

I had a new sink and faucet installed with stainless braided supply lines. Now I have a strong metal odor and taste in the morning (cold water). It has been more than a week. The brand of the stainless braided line is Watts. I suspect that it is not rubber lined like some of them are but it does say faucet line on it.

The house was built in 1951 but I have never had a metal taste or odor before.

Any ideas?

i should add
that the water to this part of the house had been stagnant for 3 - 4 months (its been so long, I honestly can't remember anymore (on purpose) how long I went without a kitchen sink. Still it has been more than week - on the otherhand I have only been using the cold water (dishwasher problem outstanding) and now I am afraid to drink this water or let my pets drink it.

Try new supply lines see if that helps.
