So we have a first level tag for fruit_tea, purple_yogurt, milk_tea,
bubble_tea, fresh_squeezed_juice, blended_juice, milkshake, smoothie? It's
too long tail and breaks down when you have a shop that sells a mixture of
those instead of just one, a single primary tag for all of these is better.

The same way we just have amenity=restaurant and don't have
amenity=pizza_restaurant etc.

The same way a place that mostly does chocolate drinks that you sit down at
and also does desserts is amenity=cafe + cuisine=chocolate, even if there
is no coffee sold.
