Pre-soak the mixed grains and purple rice for at least 2-3 hours in filtered water.
In a pot, add 3-4 cups water and the tonic bag and bring to a boil. Turn down heat to medium and simmer. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook till porridge thickens as the grains become softer. Adjust the amount of liquid to achieve desired consistency.
