High Tea is a strategic plate-spinning game, you play an independent British smuggler selling opium in China's Pearl Delta.

Buy cheap and sell high to make a profit, but make sure you also obtain enough tea to keep Britain happy. You have ten years before the opium wars begin - can you make your fortune?

Based on historical events, this game also shines a light on a questionable episode in the history of the British Empire.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

pretty good

i cant give it any more than a 7 because it doesnt really go much further than clicking the buttons when you see 3 stars. what really got me ticked off was that when i was on the very final tea shipment i found out i had just enough money to buy the last chest of tea i needed to ship to england. unfortunately britain's anger hit zero a millisecond before the tea transaction was made. it was so close that it even got to the point of telling me i had enough tea to ship but it still ended up saying game over ect.

Nicely Done

Very interesting and fun game. You make trading imports and exports fun. Good for you, lol. I do have to agree though, the difficulty does become a little much, but who doesn't love a good challenge


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Nicely done with a really interesting idea! The only thing that keeps bugging me is the difficulty it imposes for letting the deadline arrive too fast.
Otherwise, really cool game!
