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.

yes history + fun = win

Very nice game... the prices change so much you really have to keep on either tea or opium and find the price that's normal... and then you know a good deal when it comes.

Excellent.

Exerpienceful

Buying and selling opium was a lot of fun. I learned that buying tea was a pure loss. The game was quick, and had some interesting aspects (risk).
I liked the music.
I liked the concept.
It gets a little difficult to get all the tea for the final tea order. The ports weren't too active, so I made sure to grab the ones that were.
