Comparing the teas available at San Francisco’s Song Tea and Ceramics and Red Blossom Tea. Data taken from each company’s website early May 2016. Tea selections change but this is a good idea of how the two companies stack up. Node size is scaled according to the less-important steep time. Plotted against price and leaf to water ratio per brew, the two more interesting dimensions. So basically, teas in the top right corner cost the most and need the most leaf per brew, meaning you’ll pay more for them and run out of them sooner.

These datasets have lots of overlap. In Song Tea Scatterplot you can’t even access the tea named Eighteen. Force layout collision constraint code from Mike Bostock’s Beeswarm fixes all this.
