(comparative tealer, superlative tealest)
- (colour) having a bluish-green colour
Probably from an unrecorded Old English word cognate with Middle Dutch teling (“teal”) Middle Low German telink, from West Germanic *taili. As the name of a shade of dark greenish-blue like the color patterns on the fowl's head and wings, it is attested from 1923.
