taste

Taste is a function of the tongue allowing the differentiation of different modalities of food into specific sensations that are interpreted by the brain.

Much of what is called flavor is contributed to by smell as well. When you close your nose, it's hard for you to distinguish the flavor of a raw apple from a raw onion.
