I don’t believe it is helpful to cluster all kind of places where you can primarily find something to drink in a generic tag. Bubble tea is very specific, and unless you want bubble tea you would not want to find these when you are thirsty. We already do distinguish places to drink with various tags like bar, cafe, pub, and it does not seem likely that we will deprecate these, so a amenity=drinks or shop=drinks would not promise more consistency or ease of tagging. We also already have shop=wine, shop=beverages and more. I would make bubble_tea a first level tag
(or maybe a subtag for pastry/sweets etc.)
