Table 1 Expression of umami by culinary professionals

From: Science of umami taste: adaptation to gastronomic culture

Delicate and subtle  
Mellow sensation  
Earthy, musty, and mushroom-like taste  
Taste like a big meaty and mouthful  
It makes your mouth water  
Mouth watering  
Pleasant after taste with satisfaction  
Lingering sensation  
Subtle and ambiguous  
Full tongue and coating sensation  
Fullness of taste and that filled my mouth  
It provide deep flavor and harmony balance
