After the boston tea party the king taxed all the tea in the colonies.

No, what are you talking about? The Boston Tea Party was a rebellion of the colonists against England and their taxes.

There was no Tea Party Act, but there was a response from the king. He sent more troops to Boston and closed the port. One observer wrote that he thought “the whole of London “ was coming into Boston. There were 2,000 British men of war full of troops entering Boston Harbor.

The Boston Massacre turned colonial sentiment against King George III and the Tea Party was a protest against King George's tea taxes, these events together caused King George to send in troops to control the uprising of colonials which inturn caused a declaration of war with the Colonials and the British Empire.

Because innocent colonists died from British soldiers in the Boston Massacre, and the Boston Tea Party made the King furious and take away almost every right Boston had, so it made the colonists angry at Britain.

King George does not take well to the Boston tea party, and created the Coercive Acts (Intolerable Acts). This closed down the Boston harbor, forbid all town meetings, and gave the British troops the right to knock on a colonist's door, and stay in the colonist's home.

King Georges reaction to the Boston Tea Party was to pass a series of laws to punish the Massachusetts colony and to act as a warning to others. The British called these laws the Coercive Acts, but the colonists found the laws so harsh that they called them the Intolerable Acts.

The King closed the harbor because of the Boston tea party. One observer watched the British man of war ships come into the harbor and commented that “ there were so many it looked like London was arriving.” The king sent over 2000 troops into Boston.

The Sons of Liberty were the ones who attacked the British ships and threw the tea into the harbor. In result of that, King George and Parliament closed Boston Harbor, where the tea party took place.

the boston massacre took place on King Street in Boston. In Boston in the streets in front on British Headquarters
