Storyboard Text

  • Ever since the war ended, the tea company were in debt and now they need more money to pay off it. 
  • Sir, our tea company is in huge debt since the French and Indian War! We musty add taxes to every pound of tea!
  •                  Parliament for Tea Act...        By signing this, you would add more taxes to your tea in order to have pounds to pay off your debt. ___________________________________________                                                                      
  • So, they signed a parliament to add more taxes for the tea. The date was May 1773.
  • Tea Reciept Total Amount: £7.56 Tax: £5.99 Total Amount Due: £12.56
  • Why bring the tax up?!
  • It angered most of the colonists and they were protesting how they wanted tea that they could afford... 
  • It also caused the Sons of Liberty to disguise as Natives and drop about 90,000 pounds of tea into the Boston Harbor and the date was around December 1773.
  • So by recapping, the Tea Act was not intended to anger the colonists, since the company needed to have more money from the debt left from the French and Indian War. The taxes for the tea company was pretty expensive as well, which is about 80,000 of British pounds to pay.
