Corrected:

Taste is NOT a chemical property, because in most cases there is no molecular change by (chemical) reaction or chemical interaction with taste buds.

The only chemical reactions IN the mouth are those involving food digestion carried out by enzymes in saliva (eg. starch breakdown by amylase), this could change the 'taste' (eg. sugar from that amylase-breakdown gives more sweet taste).

Maybe some bitter tastes are partly (temporarely) chemical.
