In brief: Yes
Should probably avoid excessive tea drinking because there were some old reports about possible association of kidney stones i british troops stationed in india in days of the british empire.
Probably had more to do with heat and inadequate hydration. Couple of cups or glasses/day in presence of kidney problems should be perfectly safe. Unless subject is fluid restricted for azotemia or dialysis.

In brief: Yes
If you mean the regular black tea then yes.
This may be limited if you have fluid intake restrictions there are certain herbal teas which have a harmful "food substance" like in certain types of chinese herbal tea which can damage the kidney, ask your doctor.
