Tier 6 is a type of item set. Each set consists of 8 pieces.
Each piece is purchased by acquiring an armor token from defeating a Burning Crusade raid boss. Each token is good for one piece of armor (chest, head, etc.), and is valid for any of several particular classes. Note that as this was created before death knights, monks, and demon hunters were available, there are no tier 6 sets for these classes.
Some classes have several sets, each designed for a different talent tree.

Note: Before Patch 2.4.0, these sets had matching belts and boots that were not parts of them. After said patch, belts and boots were added to the sets, but they don't visually match, as they match other non-set gear from the Sunwell Plateau raid dungeon.
