The Japanese developers at Atlus teamed up with a tea manufacturer based in Tokyo to answer the very important question of how the various Phantom Thieves from Persona 5 Royal would taste as a tea. For this reason, the taste experts have identified all ten key members of the Phantom Thieves as special tea blends. According to Persona Central, the attempt was made to capture each and every character of the team and reflect their nature in terms of taste. You can check out the result starting mid-December but a package that lasts for around seven tea bags costs around €15.
