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

In 2151, Hoshi Sato proposed that scanning the taste buds of Malcolm Reed won't help her to identify his favorite food. Doctor Phlox told her that medically there is no accounting for taste. (ENT: "Silent Enemy")

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")
