Searching for Amazing Green teas

I am issuing a challenge to myself, to seek out amazing green teas. As it is already well into July I may need to wait almost an entire year to seek out some very high quality and fresh Chinese greens. I would like to solicit some recommendations as to where I can find and order (online) some of the best green teas from the following categories: Gyokuro, Sencha, Matcha, Long Jing, Bi Lo Chun, and a few other Chinese Green Teas.

I will say I am a bit clueless as where to find some very high quality Chinese greens. I do want to try a Japanese Temomicha (hand made tea). I will also be trying some Korean Green teas also, but there are very few places online that those are available and I have already started sourcing some.

In a couple of days I will post my first contender, for the title of the best green tea. I will say that this one is a doozy, and based on some of the great green teas I have tried already, this will be incredibly hard to beat.

Teas I feel should be on the list to try:

Matcha:
Wakamatsu-no-mukashi (ippodo)


Gyokuro:
Tenka-iichi (ippodo)
Yume no Ukihashi (O-Cha)

Sencha:
Ujibashi San no Ma (O-Cha)
Kaboku (Ippodo)

(Need suggestions for Fukamushi and Chumushi suggestions).


Long Jing: (Some or all of the following)
Lion Xi Hu Long Jing (Teaspring)
Emperor Long Jing (Teaspring)
Shi Feng Long Jing (Jing Tea Shop)
Wang Jia Shan Long Jing (Jing Tea Shop)

Again I am looking for suggestions, so if you have had an absolutely amazing green tea please let me know.
