okay colonists, the boat has arrived with the tea and you must unload it
*aggressively throws tea overboard*
in 1773, Parliament passed a law that allowed the British East India Tea Company to sell tea to the colonists at a very low price. Parliamentthought the colonists would buy the cheaper East India tea, even if it did include a tax.
due to the 75,000 dollars of tea lost in the Boston Harbor, the debts now have to be paid in one way or another
