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.

'sell ship'

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

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.

S'good

It's a niche kind of game, of course it's gonna be repetitive, that's pretty much what stocks are. And luck is a pretty big part of how successful you can be, as it is with the game. So it does get frustrating, but it's very winnable, and enjoyable.

Actually it makes me wanna go back and play Drug Wars.

Interesting game.

Tips:

Silver is useless unless it's being moved around. Always make sure to be trading, but don't be so hasty as to buy when tea/opium is in the 80s or sell to a buyer for 18 silver/box. Stock up on opium early, before you have competition. Then, once the tea clipper arrives, buy all the tea you can. There is no penalty for allowing Britian to wait a bit for their tea!

The price of tea is only going to rise throughout the game, barring the crash, so it is best to buy early; but don't let your opium run out!
