At least it's straightforward: they want to make a few bucks with tea. :)

I wonder if the tea is loose leaf?

Looks more like a bubble tea place. Probably powdered

I like how the words in the last photo mimic the bold green letter font of Starbucks.

It looks like a bubble tea place. My understanding is, in many places in Asia, tea beverage (bubble tea, bottled tea, ice tea...), whether containing tea or not, is regarded as beverage, but not "real tea". Not that there is anything bad about it. I love bubble tea, especially if it uses real fruits. I think in Taiwan they must use real fruits :D
