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.

Yes, quite.

I felt so British while playing this game that I almost came up with an axent. But seriously speaking, this game is awesome. The graphics are done prophecionally (I mean the view from the clouds! *sigh*) and the straight-from-the-history-books -story sets up the mood really nice. The game also offers enough room for stragedy without being too complicated. And it's challenging too!

Ps. I wondered if drinking tea would affect my scores and guess what: I actually scored higher!

Great Stuff

I've played for about 5 or 6 times, until i finally won :) great stuff, and i'm sure as addicting as the opium itself :)

Very Nice

I have to say the first time i played this i screwed over a lot, but as i played it i got better. It is addictive and involves a lot of multitasking, which was what i found screwed me over at the beginning. One thing i find annoying is that a couple of times i'm buying the last amount of tea and the bar is nearly full when Britain gets to impatient and i get game over. This happened to me on the final shipment =(

Though it takes a few games to get use to everything I found it a fustrating, complicated, and yet very fun game. Good job
