Everyone has their preferences. I like strong tea.
With a good (read expensive) Oolong - Wuyi's are my favorite - I will only brew gongfu style in a gaiwan or pot.
BUT. I like a good (read BIG) cup of tea to kick start my mellon in the morning. I buy cheaper versions of my favorite teas and brew it "western style". So to your question which teas are good for western style, my answer is lesser quality/cheaper teas. I lean towards Seven Cups middle grades for that. (They call them Premium, and their better grade is usually called Imperial)
Using a small coffee cup (200 ml) not a Starbucks universe-swallowing mug, I use the following formula.
3 grams. First infusion, 3 minutes. Second infusion, 6 minutes. I don't get a strong enough cup to do a third infusion.
I don't use a lid but give it a try. Experimenting is half the fun. Sometimes I go to bed thinking, Yeah tomorrow I'm going to try __________.
Again, it's all personal taste. Some of Seven Cups teas are particularly strong and I adjust the grams down a bit. Some of the cheaper teas are weak and I adjust it up a bit. Usually no more than 1/2 a gram.
Hope that helps as a starting point.
