The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum is located in the same body of water in which the event of December 16, 1773, took place.

There were five types of tea thrown overboard during the "destruction of the tea" - three black teas (Bohea, Congou, and Souchong) and two green teas (Singlo and Hyson).

Fun Facts

The actual location of the Boston Tea Party is thought to be at the corner of Congress and Purchase Streets. The area is now a busy intersection.

The amount of tea that was dumped into Boston Harbor, over 92,000 pounds, would be worth around $1 million today.

A complete list of Boston Tea Party participants has never been established due to the secretive nature of the event.
