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.

Tea for opium?

Seems like a fair deal to me!
Love the game, nice clean cut graphics, great ambient music, that fits the mood nicely. Great job!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

wow, one of my favorite historical games!

Wonderful graphics. The gameplay was very smooth for me. The different events that happened, i.e. bribe card et al. gave the gameplay an interesting factor other than watching the prices of tea and opium increase and decrease.
There were times when the game was so hectic in the trading of opium with the deals popping up. But it is that factor that gives this game the edge.
My only negative side to this game was that the gameplay was not long enough. It had allowed me to get in to it, but did not allow me to further enjoy the game.

46,545,440=432 billion cups of tea!

Great Game


2,820 Crates shipped to Bitain= 564 Billion Cups of Tea Drunk
2757 Crates sold to china = 276 Million Opium Users


Rated 5 / 5 stars
