Teays, written Seays until about 1884, is an unincorporated community in Putnam County, West Virginia, USA. The town is centered on the former railroad depot on Teays Lane. Teays is a namesake and part of the census-designated place of Teays Valley, which was in turn named for Thomas Teays, a hunter and trapper who once spent a considerable amount of time in the vicinity. It is apparently the only place in the United States with this name.

The ZIP code is 25569.

Geologist William G. Tight (1865 – 1910) named the preglacial Teays River after Teays, which lies in the "riverless" Teays Valley that used to be the bottom of the river.
