The Tea Act was an Act of the Parliament of Great Britain (13 Geo III c. 44, long title An act to allow a drawback of the duties of customs on the exportation of tea to any of his Majesty's colonies or plantations in America; to increase the deposit on bohea tea to be sold at the India Company's sales; and to empower the commissioners of the treasury to grant licences to the East India Company to export tea duty-free.), passed on May 10th, 1773, which allowed the British East India Company to sell tea to the British colonies in North America tax-free ("to export such tea to any of the British colonies or plantations in America, or to foreign parts, discharged from the payment of any customs or duties whatsoever"). This allowed the company to undercut the prices of colonial merchants. This was primarily intended to aid the company's finances, which were close to collapse due to famine in India and economic weakness in European markets. The British government intended to give the East India Company an effective monopoly on tea imports to the Thirteen Colonies. Although the price of tea was cheaper, the colonists knew the British wanted the coerce them from boycotting British goods, which hurt their economy. As a result, many just simply refused to buy the tea. This is a list of Acts of the Scottish Parliament. ... This is a list of Acts passed by the Parliament of Northern Ireland. ...

Some colonists deemed the tea "unfavorable". Although the British tea was more appealing in taste, some Patriots began to drink tea produced in the colonies.

The East India Company was a favored, monopolistic company with a lobby in Parliament. By simultaneously excusing the East India Company from paying tax, but applying taxes to everyone else, the act created resentment and problems. Many Americans disliked the commercial advantages granted by the government to the Company. Ultimately, this act led to widespread boycotts of tea throughout the colonies, and, eventually, to the Boston Tea Party where American colonists, believed to be the Sons of Liberty, dressed up like Native Americans and threw 342 crates of tea from the East India Company ships Dartmouth, the Eleanor, and the Beaver into Boston Harbor. This act, and the retaliatory measures taken by the British government afterwards, united the colonies even more in their frustrations against Britain, and was one of the many causes of the American Revolution. The tax on the tea was a penny, equivalent to about sixty dollars in today's terms.-1... This page is about boycott as a form of protest. ... This article is about a 1773 American protest. ...

The so-called Tea Act, passed in 1773, allowed the British East India Company to sell tea to the British colonies in North America without the usual colonial tax, thereby allowing them to undercut the prices of the colonial merchants and smugglers.
This act led to wide boycotts of tea throughout the colonies, and, eventually, to the Boston Tea Party where American colonists threw 342 crates of tea from East India Company ships into the Boston Harbor.
This act, and the retaliatory measures taken by the British government afterwards, united the colonies even more in their frustrations against Britain, and was but one of the many causes of the American Revolution.
