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.

hmmm....

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.

Love it

I really enjoy these fast pace tycoon games. However, I do hate it when it becomes really unbalance.

Towards the end, buyers was buying opium at a extremely low price. I was able to forge up to around 5xx tea in 3 games. Not once was i close to get 660. As i played more, i notice that i should take advantage when tea is super low (buying under the price of 20-30). However, even if i take extreme advantage of low low price, I still can forge up enough money to get enough tea in the end. Simply, the price for per tea was at 70-80$ per chest. I thought i would have enough with 22k but unfortunately, i didn't and came out short. Would love to play a longer, more balance game in the future.
