With Takashimaya gone, where can one go to get a first-rate Japanese teahouse experience in New York City (or surrounding areas)?

The first place that comes to mind is Cha An in the East Village. Not as "upscale" as Takashimaya was, but a good and fairly Japanese experience. Also, I believe that Nadaman Hakubai still does a Japanese tea service. Lastly, though I haven't been there, I know Ito En has a store on Madison, and they were planning on a pretty ambitious tea program. It might be worth checking them out and finding out what they offer.
