Yes.  Tea works, but spent coffee grinds are better.

Well, coffee grounds is a seedmeal which acts as a high nitrogen nutrient source in a substrate.  Tea is usually crushed leaves or maybe flowers, so would be comprised mainly of leafy green stuff, which would have less nutrients than your substrate probably has by itself.

So I don't think tea would really boost your yields in any appreciable way, but I doubt it would hurt anything.

But I have no idea.
