The taste bud was an organ on the tongue that mediated the sensation of taste with objects that come in contact with them, including food and beverages.

In 2151, Hoshi Sato considered scanning Malcolm Reed's taste buds to identify his favorite food but soon realized it would not work. Doctor Phlox told her that medically there was no accounting for taste. (ENT: "Silent Enemy")

Soon after first taking Humanoid form, Odo tried to eat but found that his lack of taste buds made the experience very unsatisfying, and messy. (DS9: "Meridian")

In 2374, when Seven of Nine was reluctant to begin sampling more "pungent" foods, Neelix told her that The Doctor had informed him that she had a full complement of taste buds, but she had hardly begun to use them. (VOY: "Mortal Coil")
