      I love this place. I go as often as I can.

      But unfortunately, I believe it is closed. I cannot get ahold of them, and two other review websites say it is closed. :( It's a shame. This was the best place to have tea in Utah, in my opinon.

      I took my Mother and daughter to Protea for the afternoon Royal Gardner Tea. It was a great experience: the food was delicious and plentiful, the service impeccable, the loose-leaf tea extensive and a lovelly atmosphere. The staff is attentive to every detail. I recommend Protea to anyone looking for an elegant tea experience.

      An absolutely elegant parlor with fantastic food, tea and service. The loose leaf tea selection is fabulous with blacks, oolongs, herbals, rooibos and greens. The Afternoon Tea is an absolute delight with an incredible selection of delectable English scones, a variety of finger sandwiches and yummy desserts! For an unforgettable experience, visit Protea Cottage. My expectations were exceeded.

      On a recent visit to Salt Lake City, I discovered this real gem nestled in Gardner Village, West Jordan.

      My tea was brewed perfectly, the scones were delicious, and the owner, Shandre, very knowledgeable.

      I will definitely be coming back.

      Dear Protea,

      LOVE YOUR GEORGIA PEACH ICE TEA! ...and Lavender & Camomille hot tea and Mint hot tea; also your tea time service is really sensational; Protea is the tea house where I want to take my friends to pamper and impress them. But most of all I love the owner's knowledge, service and attention ;-)

      Keep it going !

      I visited this tea parlor with my sisters and their daughters for the Mommy & Me Aternoon tea. The Little Ladies had a great time and we loved the beautiful presentation of the finger sandwiches and sweets. The variety of teas was amazing and the knowledgable staff was very friendly and very helpful. We've decided to make this one of our regular outings!

      After visiting a couple other tea rooms in the Salt Lake area, I've finally found one that rivals any in England. Friendly, knowledgable staff treat you like royalty and the tea selection is incredible. The best Earl Grey I've ever tasted and the traditional scones with fresh clotted cream and lemon curd are an absolute must.

      My daughter and I visited this tea parlor and we loved it. Fresh fruit, nice tea, Wonderful scones, with clotted cream, jam AND lemon curd. Their lemon curd was *almost* as good as my mom's. And it doesn't get any better than that!
