The traditional time for tea is 4 in the afternoon. So I assume the people in Boston followed tradition and it would have started at 4PM

There had been various acts of defiance by the colonists, usually resulting in the turning away of cargoes of tea. These occurred during the autumn of 1773. The actual "Boston Tea Party" where a group of individuals, disguised as native Americans, chose to throw perfectly good tea into Boston Harbour, took place on 16th December 1773. Wow, that was showing them!
