甘さ 甘み 苦さ 苦み umm good question! I think 甘み 苦み are used when talking about taste but you can use all of them , actually i think you don't have to care about the difference

”み” は ”味” のことです。 だから、甘味、苦味は食べ物や飲み物についてしか使いません。 甘さ というのは、味のことだけではなく、考えの甘さ(あまりよく考えていないこと) 苦さ というのも、味のことだけではなく、その経験の苦さ(あまりよくない経験)など、 適応する範囲が広がります。
