This is something I've made for years. The recipe is so adaptable you can add & remove ingredients to suit. It's packed FULL of super nutrients for when you're rundown! I use a big coffee mug for mine. I've also found it easier & time saving to make a big batch, pour into a sealable jar & heat up a mug when I want it.
Put Ginger/Cloves/Garlic in a mug, pour over boiling water & steep for about 5 minutes. Strain (or not) & add Honey & Lemon slice. Stir everything with the Cinnamon stick.
Alternatively make a bigger batch by boiling your water in a pot then adding the Ginger/Cloves/Garlic & continuing to simmer for about 3 minutes. Strain into a pot then heat up as you want (adding your honey & lemon to suit & stirring each time with a Cinnamon stick).
Freshly chopped Rosemary & Thyme also make great infusions for treating respiratory congestion. Use the same methods as above or even add them to the recipe.
