In this week’s “The Story Behind the Scent”, we are uncovering the story behind the creation of one of our most coveted holiday scents- chai tea! Alana Rivera, owner and soap maven of Etta+Billie will share the memories and recipes that brought this scent to life.

Tell us about the inspiration behind the scent:

The inspiration for our Chai Tea collection comes directly from the beverage itself! Before I became a full-blown coffee addict, I drank a lot of tea. Especially black teas like Earl Grey and English Breakfast thanks to my experience living in England for my Year Abroad in college. While in England, I also had the chance to try a lot of Chai Tea thanks to the heavy influence of Indian culture. I absolutely fell in love with the complex blend of tannic black tea, pungent cardamom, spicy ginger, and sweet cinnamon. When I came back to California, Chai became my go-to if I wasn’t having an English Breakfast tea. Fast forward to 2009 and this delightful beverage became the inspiration for E+B’s first Chai product, the Chai Tea Soap. It’s still one of my favorite products to create because of the creamy textured top and delicious scent.

What products does Etta+Billie offer in this scent?

Our Chai Tea blend comes in Soap, Body Scrub, Skin Balm, Room + Body Spray, and our Hand + Body Wash.

Were there any recipes/goodies that contributed to the creation of this scent?

There wasn’t a specific recipe but of course, I love a great chai tea & chai spiced goods. I’ve listed a few of my favorite ways to experience Chai below!

My good friends know that a Negroni is my go-to-cocktailQ If you know my brand, you know that I love me some boozy soap AND that my recipes are crafted from artisan food & drink. It only made sense to develop two different gin soaps that celebrate the rich aroma in their ingredients. This week I'm taking some time to celebrate gin, reflect on my past travels, and share some of my favorite gin brands with all of you!
