Why did colonists refuse to buy tea?

The taxes imposed by the British. B.F. said, "No taxation without representation." mmmmmk.

Yes correct but that was before this happend that was when they had the Stamp Act and then they repealed that to have the Townshends act whitch made tax on all imported goods from Britain They reapled both of those for the resone of the Sons of Liberty and all those people protesting so they just made tax for tea to just say we still own you we have the right to tax you
