We have, apparently, four kinds of taste buds, one for each of these kinds of taste.
Just cuddle a crumb with your tongue and if it tickles the taste buds it's prime.
The nerves of the sense of taste terminate in the tongue, or rather in the tiny cells of the tongue which are called "taste buds."
Scattered about on that organ are many tiny sense organs known as taste buds.
These buds seem to carry the sense of feeling, and are said to be represented in mammals by the taste buds in our tongues.
These taste buds are readily excited by savory substances, and transmit the impression along the connected nerve.
These papill contain organs known as taste buds, the sensory endings of which determine the taste of substances.
