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 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!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Fast and furious

This is an excellent game. Great pace, great subject, simple gameplay with strategic thinking. The little variables keep it interesting. Outstanding.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Wonderful, Even for a Strategy N00b~

I resisted playing this, because it looked too difficult and I tend to suck at strategy games. But the instructions were VERY helpful and the layout was easy to understand! I actually enjoyed it and could appreciate its historical accuracy. Nice job!
Note: This game also shines a new light on having a "Tea Party"...

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Brilliant work!

This game is highly addictive, especially for fans of the strategy genre.

Not only that, I'd like to particularly highlight the educational aspect of this game, which, in my honest opinion, should be precisely how educational games should be created! This game alone informed me about a period in history that I heard of, but never was interested enough to read up on. Better yet, it informed me in a manner that I deeply appreciate, encompassing fun and learning all in one.

Great work! Keep it up.

Though, some improvements that could be made. Perhaps there could be more bits of information to suggest the price trends in the game. It might make it more challenging to be attempting to predict the trends, and keeping watch over the opium transactions to fuel the tea trade.
