There is a tag shop=tea

According to the wiki
(https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag%3Ashop%3Dtea) this
is supposed to be used for shops which sell tea leaves and bags of tea
leaves for consumption at home or elsewhere.

However, in practice many shop=tea features are "tea houses" which sell
brewed tea. See https://overpass-turbo.eu/s/Vvi

Here in Oregon we have a Boba tea place which is tagged shop=tea -
