Do tea dehydrate you?

Tea and coffee -- anything with caffeine -- are diuretics. That is to say, they make you pee a lot. While it is true that it will not hydrate you as much as good ol' water, it doesn't actually "dehydrate" you -- it won't actually suck the moisture from you. If you are thirsty and it's a choice between water and tea, drink water. But if it's a choice between tea and nothing, drink tea.
