Persona 5 Royal blended tea sets are almost here and they look incredible. Each set is blended based on the character’s personality.
Pairing with the new line of Persona 5 Royal themed merchandise is the reveal of beautiful and most likely delicious blended tea sets. The set of teas — which will go on sale December 17th of this year at the Tea Salon in Ginza, Tokyo — is themed after each party member in Persona 5 Royal, including newcomer Kasumi:

Naturally each character’s tea has a flavor profile based on their personality (with those flavors in English) and even brewing instructions on how to properly prepare the tea and best bring out those flavors. Said instructions are in Japanese of course but nothing that a simple Google translate wouldn’t help with.
You can check out and preorder the teas here and they come in two types: the envelope packaging is ￥1250 and the special tin package version is ￥1800.
Atlus has revealed that Persona 5 Royal’s worldwide sales have officially reached over 1.4 million copies sold since it was first released in Japan in October 2019, followed by its Western launch this past March. Additionally, Atlus also highlighted that the series’ total lifetime sales to date have reached over 13 million copies sold around the world.
According to previous reports, Persona 5 Royal (the updated re-release of the original Persona 5) shipped over 400K copies in its first month in Japan. Royal also topped the sales charts in both Taiwan and South Korea. Plus, it was in the top ten for both the UK and US charts during its opening weeks.
Back in February of this year I was able to sit down with the head of Atlus West PR, Arianne Advincula, for a quick interview. We discussed the challenges faced working with a game that has already been released in Japan, changes in the English localization between the original P5 and Royal, how streaming policies have been handled since its launch in the West, the EFIGS localization, and more.
Recently Persona 5 the Animation received a full Blu-ray boxset release this September, which also included a new English dub featuring the original voice cast.
You can read our review of Persona 5 Royal written by yours truly, in which I state that “Atlus has packed Persona 5 Royal full of new content that is sure to delight newcomers and even veterans of the original with a far more robust experience.” There’s also our post review discussion featuring myself and Video Manager Mario Rivera as we broke down some of our favorite parts of the game. And be sure to check out Staff Writer David Gill’s editorial detailing why the game reminded him of what he missed about college and why Staff Writer Peter Hunt Szpytek felt this was the game he needed in 2020.
