Fake Asian product

Literally sent me 2 plastic packets of something with no English on it at all... not organic, absolute lie. Then I complained and they took a week to reply and told me that I should return it to get a refund!! Don’t trust there products, they are not organic, they take crap cheap Asian products and stick it in pretty packaging. I have reported them to consumer affairs
