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


Buying and selling opium was a lot of fun. I learned that buying tea was a pure loss. The game was quick, and had some interesting aspects (risk).
I liked the music.
I liked the concept.
It gets a little difficult to get all the tea for the final tea order. The ports weren't too active, so I made sure to grab the ones that were.

It seems I don't get it. There aren't any plates at all. It's pretty though.

Very cool

Finally won. You have to buy tea when it's cheap even when you have too much for the current order and you're low on cash. Don't sell to risky ports without the bribe card unless you're on your last year and you need emergency money. Buying opium at 50 and selling at 51 worked for me.
