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

good game...

ut gets very easy in the end


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Kind of easy, ended with a score of 58,444,992, think I could have done better, but ah well, game completed. I think it's safe to say I won simply because at random points in time the Opium AND tea would drop to 7 and I'd be able to buy around 150-360 crates of both before they rose to 20+ again. Maybe I'll favorite the game, it is a bit relaxing.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Love it...however...

The game is excellent... it seems that if you make more in the beginning and get more tea in the beginning the game compensates.... My only suggestion/question is why can't you buy your own ships.. and why not have upgrades for the ships?

Awesome game

I think you really did a very good job with this game.
It seems that the obvious strategy is buy low sell high, but still

??? -> PROFIT

In the end I've reached a score of 36M and was only 5 crates away from the final order.

Nevertheless, great game.

Finally Something Original

WOW its been awhile since i've seen an original genre at NG,
This is like Econ101 all simplified into a game (with lil world history as well)
Love the market, the buy low, sell high, make profit, convert profit to goods, complete order, start again. As well as navigating the fluctuations, risk vs reward, predicting the market, ect ect.

The bit of history stuff is like 'heh, wel damn, i jest LeRnd sumtin' " so i kinda feel smarter already after playing your game.

It may be asking much, but please make a sequel stand alone game? Not based off of history or nothin but keep the concept and let us roll with it?
