Label Tongue Taste Areas Diagram
Human Anatomy
The tongue is a strong muscle in the mouth that is covered with papillae (small bumps on the tongue) and taste buds (that sense bitter, salty, sweet, and sour tastes). The taste buds are clustered along the sides of the tongue.

Read the descriptions, then label the tongue below.

bitter - Bitter tastes (like the taste of tonic water) are mostly sensed towards the back and rear sides of the tongue.
salty and sweet - Salty tastes and sweet tastes (like sugar) are mostly tasted at the tip of the tongue.
sour - Sour tastes (like lemon juice) are mostly tasted at the sides of the tongue, at the middle and towards the front.
