I still thing they sell beverages and bubble_tea happens to be one of those
beverages.  That's why we have drink:*=yes.

And according to me, as a British English speaker.

Yes, but a cafe sells some sort of food, too, no matter the etymology.

- at least in the USA and Indonesia these places always sell coffee, unlike

In British English we have tea shops - they also sell coffee and food.  We
coffee shops - they also sell tea and food.  Functionally, they are cafes,
OSM tags define that term.

As these things have been described by later posts, they're closer to
fast food places than cafes, but for drinks rather than food.  Whatever
main tag we settle on, I think beverages is better than bubble_tea since
the proposal already included drink:bubble_tea=yes.  Then we can deal
with a shop that has no seats and sells only hot coffee to take away.  Or
iced tea.  Or fresh juices made from whole fruit on the spot.  Or whatever.
