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.

Fun

W00t, I ruined hundred millions of lives :P

Luck is a big part of the game, a little too much for my taste.

One of my favourite games

This is, in my opinion, one of the finest games on newgrounds. The idea is very clever and it is brilliantly executed. I don't often play strategy games because they involve too much reading to get into. This one, however, was very intuitive and challenging without being frustratingly difficult. Wonderful!

Awesome

Though I don't know whether the price fluctuation was scripted or not, i found this a reeeaally good game. Follow-up (if there is goint to be one) could have just a little more depth, but it mustn't lose its speed.
318 Billions cups of tea drunk ans
237 million families ruined :')

Wildly entertaining

This was an interesting, educational, and all around fun game to play. I loved playing close to the chest as the game went on, having to make bets that I wouldnt get busted just to feed the British Thirst. The only thing is that I think you should be able to sell a ship at anytime rather than when you just run out of money. It would have helped me cinch the end in one try rather than 3.

Final winning stats: 128,357,760 Points for final score (retiring wealthy), 696 Billion cups of Tea delivered to the Empire, and 369 Million Chinese lives destroyed. What a terrible period in history. Surprising how it makes such a fun game.

And finally...

after shipping 432 billion cups of tea, and ruining 175 million Chinese lives, I finally get to retire a rich man. Great game reflecting the true nature of colonialism - it simply amounts to exploitation. Good work!
