That was really expensive.
The Opium Trade was a revolutionary trade distinguished between China and Great Britain during the Late 18th, to Early 19th century. Furthermore, "Opium" is a highly addictive narcotic drug that was created from melted down Poppy Plants.
All three countries were involved as India were the producers of the drug (in Bihar and Bengal) and since they were under the control over the British, the Opium belonged to the British, who then traded it to the Chinese
