Join Mende Smith as talk to Peg Kingman about her book Original Sins Peg Kingman’s first novel, set in Scotland and India , was Not Yet Drown’d. Formerly a tea merchant and technical writer, she lives on a mountaintop in northern California . It was during the late 1990s - while Peg Kingman was a tea merchant and a beginning bagpiper -that she first stumbled across the marvelous but all-too-obscure history which sparked her novel Not Yet Drown’d. As founder of a tea company (now defunct), she was delighted to obtain a few genuine tea plants grown from wild Chinese seed stock, and arranged for a local grower to propagate the plants. Soon she was shipping young tea plants to tea enthusiasts throughouAt the United States. She planted a small garden of them herself - fifty plants or so - and learned by experiment how to grow, pluck, and manufacture tea by hand.
