Not during the Boston Tea Party but soon after. In March 1774 England's Parliament passed the Intolerable Acts which among other measures closed the Port of Boston.

In 1774, there were two separate acts that closed Boston Harbor and that placed the government of Massachusetts under British control. These were two of the five Restraining Acts that were known alternately by the British as the Coercive Acts and by the American colonists as the Intolerable Acts.1 The Boston Port Act was introduced on March 18, 1774, and passed on June 1, 1774, to compel Boston to reimburse the East India Company for the tea that was destroyed during the Boston Tea Party.1, 2 The Massachusetts Government Act was passed on May 20, 1774, to punish Massachusetts for its "errant behavior," by limiting its self government.3
