The king was very mad because that was a lot of expensive tea thrown In the ocean.
After The Tea Party
After the Tea Party the king put major taxes on them. He passed the "Corercive Acts ",and that meant the colonist had to always follow England's laws. The colonist didn't like it. The king also didn't let any boats export or import. This means that they couldn't get tea from other colonies. The colonist also didn't have anyone to represent them.
