Why colonized India?
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 have been an American Revelutionary war. The history of today would be vastly different!
