The Boston Tea party is one of the Revolutionary movements in the history of the United States of America. The Boston Tea Party took place on December 16, 1773, in Boston, Massachusetts. It is considered an American political and mercantile protest by the Sons of Liberty in Boston, Massachusetts.

The protest of the Boston Tea Party was against the Tea Act passed on May 10, 1773, which allowed the British East India Company to sell tea from China in American colonies without paying taxes apart from those imposed by the Townshend Acts. The Sons of Liberty strongly opposed taxes in Townshend Act as a violation of their rights. The Protesters of Boston Tea destroyed an entire shipment of tea sent by the East India Company.
