/t sounds like the best. It could also be a toggle command. You type /t and every chat after that only goes to team mates. You type /t again and chats go to everyone. If your worried about it taking too much time, just toggle /t on at the beginning of the game.

Here's an image I made. My first message I said goes in main chat. Then I typed /t and the server tells me team chat is on; any message I say can now only be seen by my alliances. My next message, as you can see, just goes to my team. I now type /t again and the server tells me team chat is off. Next, when I type a message, it goes in the normal chat where anyone can see.
It would be nice (but I'm not sure if it's easily possible) to have it that team chat works while waiting to start the game. So I can chat with the person who will be my team mate as we wait for more players.
The only issue I see, is that to keep games fair, team chats need to be hidden from mods and admins (meaning, a mod/admin wouldn't be allowed to see the other team's team chat). The problem is, what if a player's team mate is saying offensive things to them?
Here's my ideas:
1: The player being swore at (or whatever is happening) just has to deal with it or ignore it till the game is over. Before they leave they can take screenshots and message them to an admin.
2: There could be a command that a player could type that would allow mods/admins to see the chats going on in their team chat (that could be a privacy issue because the other team mate(s), especially if they are being offensive, may not want mods/admins to see the team chat).
3: There could be an additional command like /it (it stands for 'ignore team') which would allow a player to not see team chats (or a player could use the /mute command).
