What does it mean when you have a salty taste in your mouth?

Sinus infection and post-nasal drip: mucus may have a high salt concentration and typically drips into the back of the throat. Acid reflux: while acid reflux is mostly responsible for producing a sour or bitter taste in the mouth, it can also be the cause of a salty sensation.

Also, where are most of your taste buds on your tongue?

Taste buds contain the taste receptor cells, which are also known as gustatory cells. The taste receptors are located around the small structures known as papillae found on the upper surface of the tongue, soft palate, upper esophagus, the cheek and epiglottis.
