Git Tag not Triggering after Delete and Re-create

I have a configuration using tags as the trigger for a workflow. This has been working fine for weeks. However, CircleCI failed to pick up the latest tag (v0.0.26), and when I delete the tag (v0.0.26) and re-create it, CircleCI does not pick it up.

If I create a new tag (v0.0.27) with that same commit, everything works fine. If I delete that tag (v0.0.27), push it to GitHub so GitHub does not show the tag anymore, and re-create that tag (v0.0.27) CircleCI does not pick it up.

I am assuming CircleCI is caching what tags it has already seen and not building it since GitTags show the date of the commit and not when that tag was created. However, there is no way to kick off the associated workflow again by re-creating the tag. I did not find any documentation on this, but is there a way in CircleCI to reset that tag, so then if I re-create that tag, CircleCI will properly see it and kick off the associated workflow?
