No flavour but leaves a bad taste

I couldn't get my usual Longjing Chinese green tea so had a look at Whittards site.

I bought 50g of their Mao Feng green tea. It has no flavour compared with longjing and over 30% of the cost was postage.

I shan't be shopping there again.

    Dear Mr Slater, I can confirm that Longjing green tea and Mao Feng tea are produced and processed very differently. We sell Dragonwell green tea (which is similar to Longjing) and has a light green flavour with strong grass and roasted notes. In comparison, Mao Feng is rolled and lightly fired giving it a more gentle, mellow taste. Its colour is also much darker. We do offer a Taste Guarantee policy, where you may return the tea with your receipt for an exchange of an alternative item of similar value, or a refund. Please dont hesitate to contact us for further assistance on: info@whittard.co.uk. Kind regards, Whittard Customer Services.
