I came across the word "tea-spilling" in a video where a girl (a vlogger) is talking about moving into a new apartment:
"We're moving house and I'm still not sure of whether I want to tell you the whole story because it's a bit dramatic, a bit of tea spilling and I'm not sure I can be bothered..."

What does "tea spilling" (or maybe tea-spilling) mean?
If I hear this word I imagine this: you've just heard some shocking news and your eyebrows go up and you spill the tea you're drinking in surprise. :) For me this is a "tea spilling" reaction. Thus, tea-spilling might mean shocking, or startling.
On the other hand, there's an idiom "spill the tea" meaning "tell the truth", "tell me everything". Does "tea-spilling" mean "revealing something secret, deep, or personal" then?
The point is that I can't find "tea spilling" on the internet at all, it would switch to "spilling tea" which is not an adjective. Is it a good word? An informal word? Is there such a word at all and why I cannot find it anywhere else?
