Chai Wizard Tournament Contest

Our Masala Chai (spiced tea) Contest is both an homage to the Harry Potter™ universe (a play on words for “Tri-Wizard Tournament™”) and a loving tribute to the late Devan Shah of ITI/Waterfall Teas*, an industry legend who was a very special guest at our 2016 Houston Tea Festival.
