Time for Tea Party Cookies

 December 16, 1773 was the day of the Great Boston Tea Party. First of all let me share with you that it was not the day that those in Boston sat around with their teacup and cookies to have a great party to chat but rather it was a date that has been chatted about since that time. Colonist located in Boston primarily originated from Great Britain where tea was enjoyed. The East India Company was the shipping company that brought the supply of tea to the colonist. In order to protest the great taxes that was being placed on the tea American patriots dressed up as Mohawk Indians went about the ships and threw the tea crates into Boston harbor. Thus the Boston Tea Party went down in American History.
