Place all ingredients (except honey) in a large pot. Bring to a boil. Turn off heat and steep for about 10 minutes.
Strain into a pitcher (I like to leave the cinnamon sticks in the pitcher for extra flavor). Stir in honey while still warm.
Store pitcher in refrigerator. Reheat one cup at a time in the microwave, adding more honey to taste, if desired. Drink twice a day, breathing steam through nose, for maximum benefit.
