The band suddenly broke up in 2005 due to CreativeDifferences. Martin has gone on to a solo career at first and then formed a new band called The Armada, while Burrows is currently a member of Crash Karma. Stuart Chatwood has arguably received a BreakupBreakout, having earned critical acclaim and a steady job doing the soundtracks for the ''PrinceOfPersia'' games.

The Tea Party's music was largely based around a fusion of Blues and ProgressiveRock with Indian and Middle Eastern music, something which earned them quite a {{Hatedom}} that dismissed them as LedZeppelin-meets-TheDoors imitators. However, they became very popular in their native Canada, Europe and Australia. Later in their career, they also added electronics and an IndustrialMetal influence to their basic "Moroccan roll" sound starting with the album ''Transmission''.

TheTeaParty is a [[CanadianMusic Canadian]] AlternativeRock band active between 1990-2005, known for their distinctive [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly fusion of rock music and numerous other influences]], especially Indian and Middle Eastern, which earned them the humorous categorisation "Moroccan roll".

Though the band has recently placed the internet domain www.teaparty.com (which they've owned since the mid-90s) up for sale, hoping to get as much as $1 million US from American political activists.
