I can add tags to pageItems with and also read them out again afterwards.

     var newTag = item.tags.add();
     newTag .name="testname"
     newTag .value="testvalue"
 

How can I see this tag in the Illustrator UI?

This is right. The tags are interestingly a feature of Illustrator that is only meant for scripting. There's only one way to show these values with the UI, and that is by creating a custom ScriptUI dialog.

have you considered using the "note" property instead? unlike "tag", "note" can be seen/edited in the Attributes panel.
