Taste buds are all over your mouth—not just your tongue.
Taste buds die off and regenerate every couple of weeks (sometimes more frequently, given their vulnerable position in the mouth).
Essentially, every time you burn or chomp down on your tongue, you kill off more taste buds.
Luckily, they grow back ASAP!
