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.

Fun

Maybe I did something wrong but it seemed like the market really turned against me with that final order. Got to 650 with tea and ran out of money to do anything with and the english dropped me like a bad habit.
A sell ship button would definetly have been useful in those last few seconds.

Wildly entertaining

This was an interesting, educational, and all around fun game to play. I loved playing close to the chest as the game went on, having to make bets that I wouldnt get busted just to feed the British Thirst. The only thing is that I think you should be able to sell a ship at anytime rather than when you just run out of money. It would have helped me cinch the end in one try rather than 3.

Final winning stats: 128,357,760 Points for final score (retiring wealthy), 696 Billion cups of Tea delivered to the Empire, and 369 Million Chinese lives destroyed. What a terrible period in history. Surprising how it makes such a fun game.

I DON'T WANT OPIUM F*CK

Very nice, but after 5 or 6 games, no more people wanted to buy opium AT ALL, so I ended with lots of opium and nobody wanting it. I don't know if this is a bug or people just get tired of opium, lol
