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.

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.

'sell ship'

in my opinion the only flaw in the game is, there is no 'sell ship' button.

my one gripe is that when it gives me the option to sell a ship or wait, i cant sell the ship later. i'm on the last shipment here and i just lost because i couldnt get that extra silver, which is prettty frustrating lol

otherwise this is a very good game. fast paced and simple yet requires some skill and attentiveness to win.

Love it

I really enjoy these fast pace tycoon games. However, I do hate it when it becomes really unbalance.

Towards the end, buyers was buying opium at a extremely low price. I was able to forge up to around 5xx tea in 3 games. Not once was i close to get 660. As i played more, i notice that i should take advantage when tea is super low (buying under the price of 20-30). However, even if i take extreme advantage of low low price, I still can forge up enough money to get enough tea in the end. Simply, the price for per tea was at 70-80$ per chest. I thought i would have enough with 22k but unfortunately, i didn't and came out short. Would love to play a longer, more balance game in the future.
