Determine the price differential, Microeconomics

Severe drought hit the coffee industry hard this year; as a result, more people are now switching to tea. The first table below shows the original supply and demand quantities in the tea industry. The second table shows the new supply and demand quantities as a result of the drought experienced in the coffee industry. Please use the tables below to draw a graph of the supply and demand of the tea industry both  before and after the drought. Second, indicate the equilibrium point before and after the drought and the quantity of excess demand. In addition, determine the price differential that will serve as motivation for tea manufacturers to sell at. (Note you can plot the graphs either on excel or by hand).
