  5. I know the British tea is cheaper than the tea from the Caribbean. But I refuse to give any of my money to King George or British Parliament! Colonists still boycotted the British tea, even though it actually cost less.

  6. Ships filled with tea from England sat in Boston Harbor. Merchants refused to sell the tea, so there was no place to unload it from the boats.
