Not necessarily;  they may also be wandering (with that malevolent resonance,  errant) around the garden, tasting different things, as Eve implies they were in the speech at the tree. (Don't ask me to try to transcribe it again on Android--its aggressive spellchecker has a field day with spellings Miltonic!)

Carol, doesn't "though wandering" indicate that their appetites seek variety, or difference in taste? That would seem to argue against your interpretation.

Not so fast, Prof. Machachek: not so fast.  "Tastes" in this context can also mean "of all palate-pleasing enjoyments" else, which works better with "though wandering" than "differences in flavor."

Wily, ain't he?
