I believe it is an omission of the early days that we do not distinguish
between tea shops and coffee shops, they are quite different. In my home
town there is a tea shop, (mostly) ladies meet there, they do not sell any
coffee but have a wide variety of tea, which you can consume on the
premises but also take home (they have lots of containers and will weigh
and fill the tea you ask in paper bags, they have fine qualities of tea,
they do not sell any food AFAIK but there may be some cookies, etc.) while
in most cafes you will not get very good tea, at most some better quality
tea bag tea.

+1 (bubble tea)

no, shop=beverages as I have only seen it applied, is about a kind of
"supermarket" or "convenience store" for beverages, it is not a kind of
cafe, fast food or whatever category of food and drink amenity we come up

all these are not a kind of "supermarket" "convenience shop" ...
