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.

I take my hat off to you good sir

The most simple yet beautiful game in a while, the music is just... god damn... this is a true piece of ingenuity.

Of course you don't need me to tell you the Chinese were the ones forcefully addicted to opium, not the British to tea, but for the sake of the game, let it be.

Pretty good

Taking a Chinese history class, so I know all about the opium wars. So why is it that my ships get impounded when I sell too much to one port, but the war started because merchants had to give up their opium stocks?

The game itself does put a lot of pressure on you though, and I think that's a good thing. Kinda wish tea prices would drop more often but it's great as it is.

my only problem is:

You have to wait for a prompting to ask if you want to sell a ship. I want the option to be a button, rather than someone asking. That's all.
