Yes; provided you're drinking actual tea and not an herbal tisane. The tea (Camellia Sinensis) plant contains the theophylline and theanine, and neither are destoyed during the fermentation process used to make tea or the steaming process used for green tea.

The fementation does, however, destroy the EGCg of present in Camellia Sinensis; this is probably the reason green tea is often touted as being healthier than black tea.
