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.

wow...

Tea doesnt ship fast enough, the timer ticks a bit too fast and last but not least when you buy opium in RL you of all people should know this better when making a game that is based on literally the consumption of drugs, go and do some homework before you make assumptions about how it works. Supply and Demand opium was made in huge loads, the indian people had no choice but to make it or else they would die, the Brits had endless supplies of it and tea was also grown in india your basing this on the tea demand, all of india made the tea so there was no need for that demand lastly the opium trade was mostly based in the golden triangle. Do find out what all this means and get back to me.
