Weed ID

I have a very large patch of these plants growing in my garden and am not sure whether or not they should be pulled. The leaves smell a bit like black licorice when torn. There was no sign of it until about a month ago, and there have not been any blooms so far.

Looks and sounds like "ao/green shiso" -- green perilla.
