I found this tea boring. The little flavor it has just reminds me of grass. I used 4 grams for a 4 oz. gaiwan. I may try using more tea next time.

I would recommend you try more, for a 4 oz. gaiwan (~ 120ml?) I would recommend you use between 7-10 grams. Sorry you didn’t like it the first time out!

Thank you for the recommendation. I will give this another try today and rate again with my results. The 2003 Fu Hai 7576 is my favorite so far. It’s excellent.

No worries, maybe the Longma Tongqing is just not your cup. Everybody has different tastes – otherwise we would all eat nothing but Cool Ranch Doritos and the world would be a boring place.

The Fu Hai 7576 is quite good and used to be a total bargain. There was recently a release of some fakes into the market, which is usually a good (and bad) sign. If somebody is willing to make the effort to fake a tea, it is usually worthwhile. Unfortunately, the price has been climbing recently due to demand.
