I apologize, but unfortunately I would say no. I have never seen such a functionality in any other product using tags – by design tags are lightweight self-descriptive labels, which don't require special declaration and description. You just create them freely and throw away when you don't need them anymore.

If the intention is to put a set of tests into a logical group with description, then it is possible to use test suites (which have tags and description).

Plus, from technical perspective it is hard to associate some metainformation with tags – tag descriptions should be persisted (and be version-control ready) somewhere, but cannot be duplicated in all test cases.
