Tea Ceremony (English) recommendations

Would love to experience an authentic tea ceremony when I visit Tokyo/Kyoto end of March.

Can anyone offer their recommendation(s)?

Unfortunately, tea ceremonies that are conducted in English are not so authentic as they cater to foreign tourists who don't know much about tea ceremony. That said, I think En in Kyoto is pretty good:

We had the most wonderful experience with tea ceremony Camellia a few years back in Kyoto. She's since opened an additional location, which looks beautiful. We chose a private ceremony and found it a wonderful way to experience the beauty of the ceremony and chat more generally about Japan, customs, life.
