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.

Unlike most other games where you have drug dealers trading goods and low buy, high sell, and no time limit, this one is unique. It adds a certain twist that most games don't. I mean, who would think of a game where you trade tea instead of other things like drugs or weapons. Although I wished that the prices of tea would go down alot more, those damn british teamongers. Anyway, for any person that would like to know a good stradegy for it, here it is.

Always buy low but sell to ones that have like 20 chests for 85g a chest. That's a good deal. BUT, never ever buy too much at once. If there is a REALLY good deal for opium, buy about 2 or 3 30's. Otherwise you may wind up crashing the market and opium prices would skyrocket and never go down 40, just like i did.

Almost never go into a risky area because I found that they always bust you. And it sucks donkey dick. So try not to overload many docks with opium at once. You could find yourself with little docks to choose from.

Lastly, if you find yourself falling behind on the deadline, DONT PANIC! You could make a fatal mistake by buying a really bad deal. Check the prices of 15 and 5 as well, not just 30. Sometimes 15 could be a better deal than a large bulk of chests.

Hope this helps some of you! Excellent game btw. :3

The concept of buying low, selling high has been around for a while, but it feels like a totally new game when your playing High Tea, its all around addictive and fun, fast paced, and never a dull moment.
Keep up the good work!

Pretty good

Taking a Chinese history class, so I know all about the opium wars. So why is it that my ships get impounded when I sell too much to one port, but the war started because merchants had to give up their opium stocks?

The game itself does put a lot of pressure on you though, and I think that's a good thing. Kinda wish tea prices would drop more often but it's great as it is.
