High Tea

Author Comments

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 finally beat this game. It's a very simple game. It turns into a fast paced game and it was pretty good, one of my favorites. There's a couple mechanics I've found in the game that make it even more interesting, like how the events occured within the game. Memorizing these events can help you succeed, such as a strategy of buying as much Opium as possible in the beginning of the game in order to have a high supply when the prices rise to 90 silver per chest. The only frustrating thing was how there was no financial compensation for the tea. It probably would've made the game easier. Or more interesting. Aren't they compensating the smugglers for their time? Anyway, great game. Enjoyed trying to beat it and it was really satisfying to do so.

Really fun once you get the hang of it, though a quick reaction time is needed.

perfect for those without w/o reflexes but want to play a fun game.

the history, the gameplay, it's all good. games like these are hard to come by!

keep up the great work!

I love this, it's tea-riffic.

Better than real estate tycoon!
