So photos are helpful IMHO. They help to "sell" me on a tea ...
Exactly, the photo was deceiving.
It seems yours was, while others were not. Point being, it is hard to cry foul after receiving w/o photos before purchasing.

Ippodo is nice, but I prefer Den's website. It's just a lot simpler, nice and clean.
Obubu tea has a decent site, but a lot of the links are broken (but you can usually get to the page some other way).
Zencha has an ok website, but I wish each tea had it's own info page or something. And bigger pictures.
Greentea-Japan has a really slick looking site.
