A term started in San Antonio, Texas in the very early 1990's in the Urban Gay community. To spill the tea is to gossip. The term comes from the custom in the South of women who gather in the afternoon to drink tea and gossip.
1st person: Okay girls it is time to spill the tea.

2nd person: I have tea on Mike. He left the club last night because his ex showed up with a much younger guy.

To share gossip. A term started within the gay community of San Antonio, Texas and spread originally throughout the South Central region of the United States. Now used throughout the gay communities in United States and possibly other countries. It comes from the idea of having old Southern tea parties in the South to gossip behind people's back.
