Wikipedia description

Micromeria fruticosa, commonly known as White micromeria or White-leaved Savory, is a dwarf evergreen shrub endemic to Israel and the eastern Mediterranean. It is a member of the genus Micromeria, of the Lamiaceae family. It is known as zuta levana (זוטה לבנה or זוטא לבנה) in today's Modern Hebrew and ashab a-shai (عشب الشاي) in Arabic.

The Bedouins of Israel, however, call it by the Arabic name, qurniyya (Arabic: القورنِيه‎‎), believed to be a cognate of the Hebrew qoranit, an aromatic herb described in the Mishnah. The plant's aromatic leaves (resembling mint) are used in making decoctions (herbal teas).
