In brief: Yes

Tea definitely can stain teeth.
Green tea less so than some of the darker teas. However it can to some degree. Tea stains are easily removed during a dental cleaning.

In brief: Green Tea & Teeth

Green tea will not stain your teeth when consumed moderation.
A good rule of thumb to remember is that any substance that will stain a white piece of fabric will eventually stain tooth structure. The more difficult it is to remove the stain from the white piece of fabric, the more difficult it will be to remove it from tooth structure!

In brief: Yes.

Anything can potentially cause stain on your teeth.
How bad it gets depends on how much you drink, how frequently and effectively you brush your teeth, and how often you see your dentist.

In brief: Try White Tea

White tea is delicious, healthy and the least staining of all teas.
You can always whiten if you do have stains from tea...
