In hindi, we say 'do chai' which is the same as dos tés. In few more languages too, it is kind of the same.

You definitely could say a similar phrase in Russian: Два чая, пожалуйста. It would be a perfectly valid way to order tea for two people.

Is it right to say "two teas"? It sounds weird to me! I would say "two cups of tea".

It may be regional. I've heard people say "two coffees" or "two teas" informally when ordering drinks.

'Dos cafés' doesn't sound odd, or does it? I think the more you say something the more silly it sounds.

Tea, countable or uncountable?

Will the waiter bring 4 cups, then? Supposing that there are two customers. - Unnecessary loose expression there. I'd order: "Queremos té, para dos."
