Customer service problem

My order has not arrived. I have emailed customer services twice and attempted contact via the website. I have received no response. I can find no phone number to ring on the website. I order regularly from them, as does my family. I'm really dissapointed and hope they will get this matter sorted straight away.

Average Darjeeling

I am slightly disappointed by this tea; I have had it before and it was much more flavourful.
Maybe it's and old batch.
I shall have to go back to Happy Valley I reckon.
