    The answer is bitter taste, high pH and caustic.

    Explanation:

    The bases have a bitter taste, paint the litmus blue and have a soapy touch. When combined with a solution of an acid, a neutralization reaction occurs. Water and salt are formed in this reaction. If the pH is between 7 and 14, it is called basic. An example is caustic soda, with a pH of 12, which has great corrosive power.
