We're into cultural edge cases here.

There are places with lots of seats for consumption on the premises.  And
with no seats at all for consumption off the premises.  Calling both of
amenities is not helpful.  Calling both of those shops is not helpful.  We
need both amenity and shop IF both of those types of establishment exist for
bubble tea.

Cultural edge cases are up to the individual mapper to choose between shop
and amenity.  Or would be, if we could establish that both shop and amenity
are needed in the first place.  If you disagree with that, then whichever
of shop
or amenity you think is the best fit to your cultural edge case and should
therefore apply to all types of establishment in all countries, I want the
one.  If you think they should all be shops, even though they have some
seats, I think they should all be amenities even if they allow consumption
on the premises.  If you think they should all be amenities even if they
allow consumption on the premises, I think they should all be shops even if
they have seats.  Why would I take such a contrarian attitude?  Because I
think bringing in a cultural edge case was particularly helpful here, but
if that's
how you want to play it...
