In brief: Yes

Tea is one of the most healthful beverages and has many benefits.
Because green and black tea contain small amounts of fluoride, it increases bone density. Women who drink tea have more bone and fewer fractures than women who do not drink tea. Most herbal teas do not contain fluoride.
