This Jin Gang Sha yixing clay tall cup is named for the distinctive color of its clay. The black clay speckled with red inclusions is named Jin Gang after the fabulous armor of the legendary Chinese sky king. “Sha,” translated as “sand,” refers to its speckled, sandy appearance. The red inclusions in the clay give this cup a smooth yet irregular texture. This earthen character symbolizes strength and the feeling of being grounded.

This is an excellent special cup for a single person. It is large enough to hold all of the tea from one infusion in a small yixing pot.

Like all of our yixing clay products, this cup is unglazed. The natural clay remains its original color. Yixing clay absorbs aromas easily, so just rinse it off with boiling water instead of washing with soap.
