Actually, I'm of the opinion that instead of 'Black Gold, Texas Tea', they are possibly making a reference to 'White Gold'. Here's why:
Genesis 2:12 And the gold of that land [is] good: there [is] bdellium and the onyx stone.
Numbers 11:7 And the manna [was] as coriander seed, and the colour thereof as the colour of bdellium.
So in Genesis 2:12 - It mentions that the 'Gold' of that Land is good & there is bdellium and onyx stone. Well 'The Land' they are referring to
is Havilah. Now, keep that in mind while looking at a few more definitions.
occurs only in Gen. 2:12, where it designates a product of the land of Havilah; and in Num. 11:7, where the manna is likened to it in color.
Havilah - Meaning: the sand region
A land mentioned in Gen. 2:11 rich in gold and bdellium and onyx stone.
It was found in the land of Havilah (Gen. 2:12). The LXX. translates the Hebrew word by smaragdos, an emerald. Some think that the sardonyx is meant.
But the onyx differs from the sardonyx in this, that while the latter has two layers (black and white) the former has three (black, white, and
So what if Gold is used as a Replacement Word for something else. Something that would only be understood by those in the know, so to speak. That
'Gold' which is found along with bdellium and onyx, both which come in the color of 'White'. Bdellium then again is used in Numbers being likened
to manna and the color of White again. So perhaps this 'Gold' that is being talked about is really, for lack of a better term, 'White Gold'.
What is 'White Gold' though you ask? Well, some say that it is none other than what Alchemists call 'The Philosophers Stone'.
Here are some references:

White Powder Gold
Okay, back to the alchemical substance. When I became interested in this alchemy, because the white powder of gold was the alchemical substance
supposedly, I began to do all sorts of reading, and one of the things I came across immediately was the Melchizedek priesthood and the white powder of
gold associated with the Melchizedek priesthood. So I went to Rabbi Plotkin at Temple Beth Israel in Phoenix, and I asked the Rabbi, who is one of the
most knowledgeable rabbis in Arizona, I said, "Rabbi, have you ever of the white powder of gold?", and he said, "Oh yes Mr. Hudson, but to our
knowledge no one's known how to make it since the destruction of the first temple". He said, "The white powder of gold is the magic. It can be used
for white magic or black magic".

Since ancient Egyptian times, alchemists have worked in secret to produce something called the Philosopher's Stone, or the Elixir of Life. The
materials that Hudson and other researchers have found are believed to be related to the Philosopher's Stone. The materials have been called
ORMEs, monoatomic gold, white gold, white powder gold, ORMUS, m-state, AuM, microclusters, and manna.
