The tea was supposed to be sold in America under a plan by the British government to bail out the company and sell the surplus tea. The plan to help the company revived an old controversy.
For years, the British government had collected a tax from Americans on imported tea. Americans opposed this tax. Adidas Gazelle Trainers Blue And Yellow They argued that, because they were not represented in Parliament, Parliament had no right to force Americans to pay the tax. The second Tea Party involved the brig Fortune, which had left Boston for London in November 1773. The owners of the Fortune specifically instructed her captain not to bring back any East India Company tea. Technically, the captain obeyed. The ship returned to Boston on March 6, 1774, without any tea owned by the East India Company. But it did have on board 28 and one half chests of tea owned by other merchants, and this tea, like the East India Company tea, was subject to the controversial tax.

This measure ordered that Boston's port be shut down, starting in June 1774, until the town or someone paid for the tea destroyed in the Tea Party. These bills had been contemplated before the Tea Party, but the Tea Party gave them new urgency. Then came word of a second Tea Party in Boston. The effect was to further harden opinions in England against America. Without the second Tea Party, opponents of the measures before Parliament might have blocked or modified the tough legislation. News of this second incident made few people receptive to arguments about the potentially disastrous consequences of the measures. So, the measures passed, igniting outrage in Massachusetts far beyond Boston, setting the stage eventually for the Battles of Lexington and Concord and for the War of Independence.

The custom official refused to bend the rules for this case, just as he refused in December, leading to the standoff that resulted in the first Tea Party. This standoff had a similar result. On the evening of March 7, fifty to sixty men dressed as American Indians appeared at Hubbard's Wharf, boarded the Fortune, locked a customs man in a cabin, pulled chests of tea from the hold, and dumped the tea overboard.
