They began to throw the tea off the ship.
While they were throwing the tea off of the ship some people tried to smuggle it. THey were caught everytime.
If you were caught stealing tea, they would strip you of your clothes and put a mud jacket on you.
The people were not allowed to do any damage to the ship. They were only allowed to do damage to the tea. After they were finished damaging the tea an officer came on board to make sure there was no damage done.
