This war was a result of illegal drugs being traded for tea?

If you are talking about the opium wars that happened in china you are right. Because the English were having a balance of trade problem as a result of their love of tea (they were paying the Chinese for it with their gold) they started to pay for the tea with opium instead. Before long the Chinese woke up to the effect that opium was having on their society and made the opium trade illegal. the English other European country's and Americans then attacked the Chinese in order to maintain the status quo and force the Chinese to take payment in opium. this sounds like the boxer rebellion.
