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.

Could have played this for hours.

I geuinely felt like a trades captain for a fleet by the end, having to make a snap descisions and taek some bigger risks. Its an amazing game well deserving of praise. I'll be playing it again and again and recomending it to friends..

Goooooooooooooood (:

Very Interesting and enjoyable, especially when you have to get 400+ tea (: Really good fun...
Tip: Just buy and untill there is under 7 weeks left then spend all your money on tea.
Tip: Try to avoid buying opium at high prices for obvious reasons

Simlpe yet effective

I enjoyed playing the game. The game itself is very simple, buy low sell high. The trick is to balance buying opium to make more money, and buying tea to send off. I've managed to get to the last shipment of tea, but the most I've gotten by the time I lose is about 300 or so chests of tea. Since the prices sky rocket at the end, while buyers keep lowballing, I think I need to start stockpiling tea earlier. Also the crashes come at the same time, so Just save money just before them and buy non-stop while it is low. Also I had trouble keeping on top of both the prices of buying and the selling price, so sometimes I missed good deals. Fairly challenging, and addictive. Good job.

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.
