The British East India Company. Sometimes, smugglers would sneak tea into the colonies.
The American Tea Act of 1773 granted the British East India Company a monopoly on tea sales in the American Colonies. The Act is what ignited the Boston Tea Party.
American cookbooks of the 18th century show tea recipes. They were often called "punches" and spiked with liquor and with green tea. The recipes were regional and often had regional names. It wasn't until the invention of the refrigerator that true ice tea was introduced made with black tea.
it first came to America by giant flying dragons with axes and long piles of wood. actually that is wrong
The Tea Act was a British legislation that granted a monopoly on tea to the East India Company in the American colonies. Parliament passed the Taxation of Colonies Act 1778 which repealed the Tea Act.

Tea was introduced into the UK and the American colonies in the 17th Century. Charles II's Queen, Catherine of Braganza, had grown up with a taste for tea. When she married Charles and came to England, tea gradually became a fashionable drink.

Tax on the export of tea to the British colonies imposed by the British Parliament to increase revenue. It came about as part of a series of Parliamentary legislature known as the Townshend Acts. The first of these acts was the Revenue Act of 1767, also know as the Townshend Act, which imposed export duties on numerous products that the American colonies did not produce and could only buy from Great Britain. This made tea… Read More

The Boston Tea Party was a protest of the lowering of the cost of the British tea by the government and the East India tea company who had gotten a bail out from the crown in 1773.

India was originally colenized by England; to establish tea plantations. The British government considered India, far more important than the American colonies. Thus, to support The East India Tea Co, they put a tax on tea imported to the American colonies. One of the quirks of history. What would the American Founding Fathers have used, to insite the American colonists to rebell against The Crown? It there had been no tea tax. Tere might not… Read More
The British enforced many taxes and laws on the American Colonies without any American representation. One of the most important was the "Tea Tax", which made many angry.
in spite of tea's very early discovery in Asia, tea was first imported to the UK around about the 16th century.
It was important so that the colonies could export the tea back to England, in return for materials they needed but could not get in America.

Four acts of the British Parliament in 1767 that imposed duties on the import of paint, glass, paper, lead, and tea to the North American colonies. The acts also called for quartering of British troops in the colonies. Though eventually repealed (except for the tax on tea), the acts were the source of resentment and led to the famous charge of "taxation without representation" and directly to the Boston massacre. The act that placed duties… Read More
The act imposed duties on tea, paper, lead, paint, etc., imported into the American colonies.
The Boston Tea Party happened at a time during American history when the colonies were being taxed unfairly by the King of England. Some of the tax was on tea, which colonialists had to pay high taxes on. This was a result of the Tea Act of 1773. The Boston Tea Party brought many colonialists together and helped pave the way for the American Revolution.
The tax on tea was dropped in 1778, when the American Revolution had already been going on for a couple years, in one last desperate attempt to get the colonies to stand down.
The East India Tea Company was the only legal source of tea in the colonies.
How did taxation create tensions create tensions between the American colonies and the British government?
The King of England put taxes on the tea Britain was shipping in. The Americans did not like the taxes resulting in the "Boston Tea Party" also resulting in "The American Revolution".
The American Revolution had a lot to do with taxes. Revolutionaries felt that they were being unfairly taxed by the British government, especially since the colonies had little to no representation within the British Parliament. Two catalysts for this were the Stamp Act of 1765 and the Boston Tea Party (1773). The Stamp Act was a tax on anything printed, and the Boston Tea Party was part of the boycott on taxed tea. There were… Read More
To help pay for the French and Indian war. They needed the money since they were fighting two wars. One in Ireland and the other in the colonies. By the way they didn't raise the tax on tea, but lowered it. American colony smugglers who brought in Dutch tea got upset because the British tea would be cheaper than the Dutch and that would have cut into the profit that the smugglers made.
No. It took 3 more years before there was war.They didn't dress up. This is part of the fable. The Boston Tea Party was a protest of the lowering of the cost of the British tea by the government and the East India tea company who had gotten a bail out from the crown in 1773.

Because they felt that the king had no right to tax the tea, that along with other taxes like the stamp act pushed the colonists over the edge.
No Americans died during the Boston Tea Party. Only the tea did not survive.
One of the grevances the colonists had with Great Britain was the imposition of taxes on various goods, including tea. The Sons of Liberty decided to protest. They dressed as indians, boarded several merchant ships in Boston Harbor and dumped the tea overboard. This made the tea undrinkable, even for Americans.
Tea comes from China. It was exported to Korea and Japan, first, then to South Asia. Marco Polo introduced tea to the West, but the interest died later. When South Asia began to grow their own tea, it was then exported to the West. http://exposingchineseancestorworship.blogspot.com/2010/02/spread-of-chinese-tea-culture-to-japan.html
The Colonies protested England's new laws by dumping English tea into the harbor and refusing to pay taxes on it. This event is considered the beginning of the American Revolution.
they started a revolution first by dumping tea into the Boston harbor then by fighting back against the british driving them out of the colonies
England (Britain)'s initial relationship with the 13 Colonies (Now the USA) was a good one. This was true until Britain made taxes on different things (mostly tea), and made different acts that annoyed the 13 Colonies (i.e. Stamp Act, Quebec Act). The 13 Colonies rebelled by dumping British tea into the Boston harbour which was later called the Boston Tea Party. All these things added together to start the American Revolution.
The king closed the harbor. But the story we think we know is not true. First they didn't dress up. This is part of the fable. The Boston Tea Party was a protest of the lowering of the cost of the British tea by the government and the East India tea company who had gotten a bail out from the crown in 1773. The smugglers in the colonies found the Dutch tea that they sold… Read More
Charles Townshend, the English Parliament by Chancellor of Exchequer introduced the Townshend Act. It imposed duties on tea, paper, paints, lead and glass imported into colonies in 1767.
American colonists did not want to pay the tea tax that Britain had recently established in the colonies. To show their discontent, the people of Boston dumped tea into the harbor to show that they were not going to pay for it.
First off no body was EVER named tea party. the boston tea party was when the settlers of the 13 colonies wanted to show rebellion against the brtish so they dumped all of the tea they had obtained from recent tea deliveries into the water.
