In brief: They will heal.

Just like skin cells your taste buds are constantly being replaced and just like skin cells they will heal over time.
Depending on the severity of the burn it could take about 5-7 days. In the mean time avoid hot and/or acidy food and drinks, as they will slow down healing.

In brief: Acid Attack!

Apple cider is a weak acid.
Many times acidic tastes can create a burning sensation on the tongue.
