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.

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.

Interesting

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.

a tip for who is starting
AVOID AT THE MOST TO SELL UNDER 15 CHESTS! unless its 99 or something...
50 chest for 50 prices end up being much better than 15 for 99
just don't let your money or anything siting around for long
