Tagging is called labeling in mutt.

You can add a label header, X-Label, and have mutt sort (and color) on
if you add the X-Label header, you can limit your view to that label
with ~y pattern (check the mutt documentation).

I basically label it with either maildrop (automatic labeling when mail
comes in), or editlabel(1) script
