High Tea

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.


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.

cool game

i like the game.
it's funny how you have to stock all up and then buy or sell like crazy but simultaneously you have to pay attention not to buy to much^^

it is possible.
maybe you had bad luck but i beat the game on the first try^^

Didnt win but got a wealthy retirement

Very well made and polished game
