See https://wordpress.org/support/topic/possible-tag-bug

I'm unable to add at tag to a post when the tag has an ampersand in it.

Otto says:

I don't get an error, but I do have to save it twice for some reason. When I hit enter, the tag gets saved to the database, but shortly disappears from the field. Reentering it makes it show up in the quick selection, and selecting that actually puts the tag on the post

In the database, the term is actually saved as "a & z". I think that disconnect between the entered tag and the one created to the database is confusing to the editor code which is why it disappears. When I reenter it, it fetchs from the DB with the amp; and now it's correct.
