There was no noise at all after the colonist finished dumping the tea the started to clean. The cleaned, and cleaned until it was spotless. The colonist cleaned and mad sure they didn't destroy anything else but the tea.
There many chances for people to steal some tea but they didn't. A man came onto the ship and filled his pocket, and the lining of the coat with tea. Before he could step of the ship he was seized, nut he ran, and his jacket ripped. They eventually caught him and gave him a coat of mud, and they ahd people kick and hit him.
There was another chance to save little tea by an aged man wearing a white hat and a wig. He was picking up some little tea but he was caught and seized. They threw him and the little tea he had into the water.
