Knocking...well more of a tapping sound, help

when the car starts out cold especially in the cold salt lake city winter, there is a fairly loud tapping sound. when the car warms up, the sound disappears in the cabin, but still audible from outside the car.
When starting in fairly warm weather 60F ish, the tapping sound is faint but still there and kind of goes away after the car warms up.
I've been told that this could be the timing belt tensioner for whatever reason, could it be anything else?
when i did a valve job on the engine ealier this year, i replace the belt but not the tensioner.
