I can tell you what not to get. I decided to go wild and try the 2013 Autumn
"Long Mei" Yunnan Green Tea of Feng Qing. It turned out to be nothing like the "Long Mei" linked to above. Even the photo given of the autumn Long Mei is actually a photo of the spring Zhenyuan Long Mei or some other generic Long Mei.
The stuff I got had an unprecedented fruity and sweet smell to the dry leaves. Once wet, the leaves appeared covered with black particles. They seem to originate the leaves themselves, which have parts that are as if rotten with brown/black edges. The first infusion is extremely sweet to the point of being nauseating - there is no balance. In contrast, subsequent steepings quickly develop an overpoweringly smoky flavor.
