Qui One Quint: tea house, pipe and tobacco

The British writer Saki once said: "Find yourself a cup of tea; the teapot is behind you. Now tell me about hundreds of things."

Qui One Quint is one of the best places in Cluj Napoca where to tell or to listen to "hundreds of things", whether in the company of friends, your better half or just another tea consumer. Drinking a tea here is just like inviting someone in your own living room. Everybody feels like home at Qui One Quint although we must admit we don't all have beautiful antique furniture in our homes. This can change as all the decor in the tea house is for sale.

Choosing your tea at Qui One Quint is the hard part! If you can't make up your mind after going through the menu you can walk to the antique shleves where a large variety of teas are disposed, open a tea-box and be overwhelmed by the intense smell of aromatic, fruity, strong or spicy fragrances. Qui One Quint serves fruit teas, black teas, oolong teas (somewhere between green and black in oxidation) and green teas.

This tea house also has an exclusive club with a very select community. Members have different obligations and benefits as well, but if you are a tea connoisseur or just a guest you will definitely feel welcomed in this lovely chic place just across Simion Barnuțiu Central Park. Qui One Quint is indeed one of the most hidden tea houses in Cluj Napoca, but searching for it is definitely rewarding.

I LOVE this place! It really has the best teas in town and after taking a long walk in the park, dropping by Qui One Quint is such a treat. Oh, and I love the fact that you can actually see and scent all the types of tea before ordering (and they serve about 75 goodies). I always become impatient before my tea comes because I can't wait to feel the taste of the tea I have only smelled. This really makes it more of an experience than just drinking an ordinary cup of tea.

This is probably the classiest tea house in Cluj, and it's where I asked my wife to be my girlfriend, some years ago :). Deciding what tea to order is a slow, but wonderful process!

It’s a very cozy place with a large variety of teas, and it’s sooooo cool that you can smell them before you order! The girls are very nice and friendly, and they help a lot if you don’t quite know what to order, they also know a lot of information about tea. The whole teahouse has such a good vibe. Love the jazz and blues they play! I recommend it to people, who are looking to have a relaxing afternoon, in an amazing teahouse!

I just read a comment that the girls are sometimes autistic..Well, I disagree, because one of the reasons my friends and I keep going back to this relaxing place is the service. We love the great variety of teas, cookies, the ambient, the music, and I couldn't ask for better service than those girls provided each time we went there. I recommend the place to everyone, if you're looking for something special of course !

The Qui One Quint tea house is a very nice place. It is a place were you can enjoy your tea in privacy. The girls how are serving the clients are very kind and helpfull, and in the meantime they keep your privacy and let you enjoy your time without bothering you too much. So every time I need a little bit privacy, nice music, good serving and very well made good tea I go to Qui One Quint teahouse. All of you should go there.
