Wild harvest herbs

Do any of you harvest any herbs from the wild, for use in herbal teas, blending with true teas, or for use in cooking?

Shiso (perilla) is widely naturalised where I live, and I use it both to brew up an herbal infusion, and to use as a cooked vegetable. I also regularly take lemon balm, and less frequently, mints, from naturalised populations.

I mainly use mint and low grade green teas, boiled together. Nothing original :p

Otherwise, my chinese family uses a huge amount of picked herbs (or bought in chinese pharmacy) for specific infusions, never mixed with tea.
