Long E Sound: ee or ea?

The long e is spelled either with ee, like in see, meet, and seed, or ea, like in seam, team, and bead.
In the case of ee / ea there is no rule that dictates which may be used where. In fact, we often have homophones differentiated by two different spellings of the same sound, such as peek and peak, meet and meat, or see and sea.
