High Tea

The Wellcome Collection has introduced an online game called High Tea. You obtain opium in India and smuggle it into China, where you trade it for silver to buy tea. Millions in England are counting on you!

It’s not all that easy to play! Also, I really want a cup of tea now.

The High Society exhibition also offers a quiz, an image gallery, information about drug use in Victorian England, a companion book, and related reading.
