We’re only at the halfway mark on Monday and, frankly, I might already be out of gas for the week. But still, there’s many a way to reinvigorate a tired drive and a lousy brain – a pleasant walk, a quick round of Huntdown, clawing at your scalp while ugly crying (my personal favorite), or settling down with a nice cup of tea.
And what tea could be more perfect for the video game fan in your life than this all-new Persona 5 tea, which is headed to Japan stores in December courtesy of blend specialists Tea Salon of Ginza. Each member of the Phantom Thieves has been given their own specific blend, offering bespoke flavors for Joker, Lady Ann, Morgana, Futaba, and even Persona 5 Royal newcomer, Kasumi. Each blend is attuned to the character’s personality, which is a neat idea. I bet Goro Akechi’s tastes of piss and betrayal.
A small tin of Persona 5 tea will retail for ¥1,800, or roughly $17 USD. A cheaper option offers the tea in paper packaging for a slightly cheaper ¥1,250, or about $12 USD. You can check out the full range of flavors on the official Tea Salon website. You can also find full translations for each blend over at Persona Central.
Which is your favorite? I’d personally go for the sharp tang of Makoto’s Ginger and Caramel. Sounds delicious, as befitting a brew fit for a Queen.
