How did the colonists protest the Tea Act?
U.S. Colonists protested the Tea Act, which was imposed on them by England. It created a monopoly that allowed only the East India Trading Company to trade tea with the colonists. This allowed the company the ability to charge whatever they pleased for the tea. The colonists protested the Tea Act through the Boston Tea Party. The Boston Tea Party was a protest in which Sons of Liberty disguised themselves as Native American warriors and boarded three British cargo ships, dumping all of their tea into the harbor.
