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

a bug showed up
after playing this for a few times a bug showed up and the timer stopped working and i manged to go all the way to the end. But there was no longer a game over when the mood counter reached 0

its awesome


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

great game

I never taught a tea game could be good, but this one, this one is just great. Maybe it's selling illegal drugs or something like that. There is just a minor set back, the could be longer and more fun. Some upgrades could be done. And.. yeah great game I got 86,976,279. I finished it the second try because I didn't bother to read the tutorial because I taught it was a bad game. Well it turns out I was wrong.

But I thought opium originated in China, and was imported to Britain. Either way, this is a good game. We see many games romaticize history, white-washing over the unsavory parts. But this one gets down to reality (drug trafficking) and the reason for it (commerce). Good job!

Oh my.....

I am SUPER terrible at this, but I can't stop! The first time I played I was "A disappointment to Britain".....BuT I MUST TRY AGAIN!! The in-game instructions confused me a it, but once I hit the actual game play I start to get the hang of it. Good game, and nice graphics.
