As with learning about any new subject, my mind is filled with swirling bits of information that are exciting and overwhelming. The knowledge about infographics is no different. I wanted to look at examples and felt immediately overpowered by the mass of information. So, obviously, I needed to choose a subject to narrow down, so I could really SEE the information. I will have enough time to look at dry statistics for the rest of my life – why not find something entertaining – at least to me – to just see if an infographic can convey the proper inforamation?

So, I just typed in “infographics on tea drinking.” I do so love my cuppas. WOW! Even with something as “specific” as this, there are literally hundreds of images that came up. This first graphic I picked to look at primarily because it looked pleasing. The colors are pleasant and it has easily understandable information. I chose the image because it is visually pleasing and while it contains no statistics, it does give colloquial information about the theme “Health benefits.” Although the information is interesting, I would have liked to see some numbers associated with it.
