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.

Nicely Done

Very interesting and fun game. You make trading imports and exports fun. Good for you, lol. I do have to agree though, the difficulty does become a little much, but who doesn't love a good challenge

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.
