I posted it here before I found how to report it.

If you click on Teas, the first 2 highest rated teas on the list are:

1) Teas that were just added on the 28th
2) Have 3-4 ratings, with no comments. I also noticed that they have other teas all with 3-4 ratings and no comments:

3) Different company names, but similar boxes (on further investigation, both belong to http://www.amigos-international.org/en/)
4) tea bags!

Hmm, I didn't see that with the top rated teas when I checked. But we know there is some concern from the community about this so we'll investigate some more to see what we can find. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Thanks Jason. I think Doulton went in and rated them a 0 to test the system which knocked them out of the first page. Check out the thread on steepster that I linked to above.
