(A) A special Japanese green tea called genmai-cha contains brown rice and is considered as a delicacy fit for a gourmet by most Japanese, though it is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.


(B) Considered to be a delicacy fit for a gourmet by most Japanese, genmai-cha is a special green tea that contains brown rice, virtually unavailable outside Yokohama. (what is unavailable greentea or brown rice)

(C) A special Japanese green tea called genmai-cha contains brown rice and is considered a gourmet delicacy by most Japanese, though it is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama. (SOunds right)

(D) Most Japanese consider genmai-cha, a special green tea which contains brown rice, as a delicacy virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.
(they just consider it as a delicacy, not as a delicacy unavailable outside yokohama)

(E) Though virtually unavailable outside Yokohama, most Japanese consider genmai-cha, a special green tea that contains brown rice, a gourmet delicacy. (the bolded part should refer to the tea and not japanese)

You are not doing this "for a change". You are doing this for yourself and also for others. I believe that it is only fair that people try to explain their answers so that when they need some explanation in return, they can get it. There is no value and there would be no value to gmatclub if people would only say A,B,C,D or E without any explanation. Keep it up for you are only doing the right thing and leading by example.

You're right, Paul. Sorry about the short answer :) . I was thinking about explaining it after OA is out .
Here are my explanation for C:
A)consider as.... is not idiomatic
B)awkward structure "considered to be...,". unclear modifier "virtually unavailable outside Yokohama".
C)correct
D)consider as... unidiomatic
E)"Though" clause modifies tea, but the subject in main clause is "most Japanese".

Thus C.
