Tea Act of 1773
Monopoly on tea sales to the East Indian Company.
"No Tea from The East India Company"
The East Indian Company wasn't doing so well, as it had tons of pounds of tea, so the Tea act was made. The East India Company was way below other tea suppliers, and the Tea Act made it very cheap. The British sent ships of tea to the North American Colonies, and the colonist were not allowed to buy tea from any other company except for The East Indian Company. The American colonist were angered by this and saw this as another "taxation without representation". They refused to unload the tea from the shops which then led to The Boston Tea Party.
