Sitting and steeping are orthogonal, provided the tea preparation 
apparatus has a method to arrest steepage (e.g., a Chatsford tea pot 
with large-basket mesh infuser that one simply lifts out after the 
appropriate interval).  However, my understanding was that the 
customary way to prepare British-style tea is to leave the leaves in 
all day, providing a strongly tannic tea which is better suited to 
copious milk and sugar.
