I think we could have just one tag for bubble tea establishments, either shop or amenity, and deal with seating in a separate tag (or, for example, something like takeaway=only).
Have a look at ice cream. it is somehow similar (although there are I believe a wider variety of places, e.g. cafes which sell cups of ice cream with fruits, vs the ice cream wafer takeaway places), in particular, amenity=ice_cream does not guarantee that you can sit down in the place.

Cheers Martin 

PS: for the avoidance of doubt, I agree that shops are more for takeaway places and amenity more for places that invite customers to consume at the premises.
