Are you talking about interior or exterior teak, or both?

Personally, I would not coat teak with epoxy. Clear (i.e. unthickened) epoxy is used as an impermeable sealant, to protect wood from water damage. Teak doesn't need protection from water -- it is already virtually impervious to rot because of its natural oils.

Also, the epoxy will need to be protected from uv damage at all times. If you ever miss a re-varnish cycle and the epoxy suffers uv damage, you will have a real mess stripping it all off.
