What about the flavours’ basic form (taste)?

Other expressions to describe flavour/taste in Korean:
시원하다 = It’s refreshing (can be used to describe cool fruits, refreshing cold noodles or even hot soups/meals that has a refreshing taste)
고소하다 = It’s nutty (There is no direct translation for this phrase as it does not actually mean nuttyness, it actually can be used to describe salty or fragrant, like nuts, snacks or even drinks such as coffee).
느끼하다 = It’s oily (Despite its literal meaning of “oily”, it can be used to describe foods that are too greasy or creamy, like fried food or cream pasta).
