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.
