I haven't had any of them, but based on my limited experience with 2006 and 2007 teas (which seems to resonate with a lot of other peoples opinions) the quality of tea being put out was sub par due to a lot of factors compared to other years. All teas I've had from 2008 (which, to be fair isn't a lot) seem to be of higher quality in general. I would assume 2008. Then again this is just a guess, so take that with a huge grain of salt. I don't claim to be an authority on the subject either so hopefully some more people who know more than I do can comment. If I had more money and more time then I'd probably be worth listening to once in a while after a decade or two
