Infographic of the Day: Taxonomy of Tea
This beautiful taxonomy by Wendy Chan takes a look at different types of tea from around the world, and breaks down what they’re made of in a visually stunning and clear way.
Taxonomies are often quite busy and complicated graphics, I guess that depends on the subject matter, but what Wendy Chan does here is to display all of these different teas in such a simple and elegant way that you can instantly see what the tea is made of without too much effort. A lot of graphics tend to over-complicate matters in an attempt to create a nice visual, but I love Chan’s approach to simplifying tea into its basic components, with the key / ingredients list presented in a lovely diagram in the middle.
Who knew that there were so many types of tea? (^_^)
