In this article it says that tea consumption in America got a hit after the Boston Tea Party, which was a protest against English taxes imposed on the colonies. I think this statement has to be taken with a pinch of salt: Two tea smugglers, one of them a Boston lawyer called Samual Adams the other was John Hancock, saw their profits hit by cheap (tax-exempt) British tea imports which undercut their smuggled tea from Holland. They thus hired a bunch of ruffians who dressed up as Indians and they dumped the tea from the British ships into the harbour. Insurgency was then the outcome and a war was started (plus ca change) under the wrong premises.

Don't forget about the sugar tax that was messing with our Rum trade in the Caribbean.
And I certainly wouldn't have wanted to have to pay for a stamp just to get my diploma.
