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.

opium... mmm

I must say that the game is highly "addictive" :) It's also rather short, but the historical references both in the intro and after completing it make up for that. When you play it for the first time it's rather confusing to follow all the prices and making mistakes is so easy when you are in a hurry to get the tea.

A few things though, Some times it takes only buying opium or tea only once for the prices to hit 99 and on other occasions I noticed that although the price should be dropping as stayed by the system message, it reaches 99 instead and then drops.
But overall really good game with nice music and terrific atmosphere.

Great Game!

The mood was really compelled me to get into it. I think that it's captured just right. Perfect mix of exotic and seedy.

Awesome! Rank - A Wealthy Retirement Awaits you.
Finished the game with over 20K silver coins and over 200 opium. Victory!
Only sold to those with 70+ per chest.
Only bought and sold opium and tea when it was under 50.
Luck carried me all the way =D
awesome game! It might just be that win but that win was awesome!

Addicting, mmm...

First off, I like tea. Also, I see what you did thar. Now on to the serious business.

Very nice graphics, and splendid price system, I like it how it reacts when I start a purchasing panic. My only rant is that it is a little too short. I would like an endless mode.

Reminds me of Taipan. If you could you remake Taipan, but in your style, that would be awesome.

Tell me, were you inspired by taipan in any way? Just curious.
