I've aimed 5mW on my tongue in the past, and never accidentally tasted any metals. I've tried again and concentrated on the taste, nothing. I took my high powered red and gradually increased the power, and when it's full (247mW), still nothing, not even warmth. I focused the laser to a very tiny spot and tried again, still nothing at max power. The light get dispersed too much inside my tongue that it's not absorbed enough in any small space, so no heat is felt.

I aimed it at a thick layer of saliva, and after 10 seconds, it tasted different, but the same like exposing saliva to oxygen for 10 seconds. (maybe that's what you're all confusing with copper taste)

I tried with green 40mW, I only feel a distinct warm spot, same as shining on my lips. No taste.

I'm not going to try my UV, because if it stings the skin, it surely will fry my tongue.

I can't taste anything but I can lick my elbow...

Seriously though, I can't taste anything. I wouldn't know what copper tastes like either. I just know I couldn't tell a difference when I put the laser on my tongue.

When I shine a laser at my tongue I do not taste anything, but I can faintly hear Die Zauberflote from Mozart. Weird stuff.
