When getting into the higher number of infusions, I've heard people talk of steeping on the order of hours.

Do you pour in the hot water and then just let it sit for that long period, pour the tea into your glass, then heat the glass? Or re-heat the pot before you pour?
Or do you maintain the water in the pot at a high temperature throughout the steeping by some method?
What do people usually do? (aside from give up at the 5th infusion
