You are probably saying why are you taxing this well because you get all that awesome land over there you are probably going to get a lot of money. The Tea tax shouldn't make a difference you just have to pay more money than you used too nothing too different. You have a lot of tea leaves over there so why worry? You also owe us money from the war. If we hadn't sent troops your way you would all be dead.
