In the near future, we will be adding a restore option on the Manage Tags tab (Manage Team > Manage Tags). This update will make it so that when tags are deleted, they will be kept in a deleted section in the Tags tab and can be restored for up to 30 days from the date of deletion. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88318.
Note: This is similar to the lifecycle management for Teams Channels.
This feature will update default tag management settings in the Teams Admin Center to include ”Team owners and members” and not just “Team owners.” You can still update this to only “Team owners” at the tenant level and override the default.

When this will happen
We will communicate via Message center when we are ready to proceed.
How this will affect your organization
If the tag setting at the manage team level for “Tags are managed by” is set so to “Team owners and members,” then all team members will be able to see and restore deleted tags.
If the tag setting at the manage team level for “Tags are managed by” is set so to “Team owners,” then only team owners will be able to see and restore deleted tags.
What you need to do to prepare
