Tasting has never been part of law enforcement training so it would be difficult to testify as to why you know what it tastes like. And since you don't know what is in that mysterious white powder you have found, its not a good idea to put it in your mouth. There are field testing kits or you can arrest them using the white powder as probable cause pending lab results. Even with the field kit results it will go to the lab as well.
