  1. Unlike the popular belief, the party was not a mark of protest against the tax hike, but against the corporate tax break. The British Government enacted a Tea Act in 1773 according to which the total tax on tea sold in America was actually reduced. This would allow the colonists to purchase tea at half the cost that was paid by the British. The colonists felt the taxation legislation was being passed without their consultation. This self-governance attitude was what irked the tea- partiers.
