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.

Historically-correct game

A highly interesting simulation of the time prior to the Opium war. Very fun although I wish there was more to it than just observing the price index and clickity click.

Great game, BUT...

Great game overall - especially the controls and graphics are appealing.
Later on in the game it's hard to buy the stuff quickly enough, even if you have enough money - buying 570 chests of the with 19 clicks (30 chests each) takes way too much time... you should add 100 and 200 chest buttons!
And there were long long times when the prices for opium and tea were unchanged on a very high level - killing you off no matter what you do.
So, just 7 stars for this one

At 127,815,640 points, a wealthy retirement awaits

Very nice game, but a bit tedious on the first couple runthroughs. The best way to succeed is just to power buy and sell everything... Not much strategy there.
