Taste = (i) flavor: ‘I don’t like the taste of strawberry.’ (ii) to test the quality of food or drink by taking a little into the mouth: ‘The chef tasted the soup and added a little salt in it.’ (iii) to eat or drink a small quantity of: ‘She offered to taste the wine.’

When you have something to eat or drink for the first time, you try it. ‘I think I’ll try the onion soup. What’s it like?’

Have good/poor/little/no taste (in sth), (without a/an) = a person’s ability to choose things: ‘She has good taste in music.’

Be in good/poor/bad taste: ‘These advertisements are in very bad taste and in my opinion should be banned.’
