  • Taste, which is defined as the sensation of flavor perceived within the mouth, is such a broad topic. 
  • It is one of our main senses- besides the others, such as: vision and hearing.
  • We all have the ability to taste all different types of food and drinks of various flavors- such as: sweet, sour, salty, or bitter. 
  • All of those forms of taste are completed on different parts of the tongue. 

*Here is a picture diagram on where those taste types are located on the human tongue:
  • Everyone may tastes certain food and drinks differently. However, everyone ends up discussing the taste of various food and drinks with strong emotions that can be either positive or negative. (Possibly even both too...)
    • For an example: When you and some other people go to a new restaurant, you tend to judge even more carefully how the food and drinks are presented, cooked, and taste overall. After you're done your meal, you then truthfully profess your ratings and specific reviews on the restaurant. Was it good? Bad? Maybe just ok?
    • This is quite similar to some of the taste presentations that we viewed today in class.- especially, when the classmates that went to different restaurants in this area and they all talked about if the food was dry or flavorless and so on...
  • Taste is so very essential and overall such an expansive topic. --- Check out this short and interesting video for more in depth information on taste as well ->
