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 throughout the United States.
