This is probably D,

fit for a gourmet by most Japanese in A doesn't sound correct.
B, C considered as is the right idiom here
e is unecessarirly wordy.

I think C too.

D has a clause problem. Which should be replaced by THAT for the restrictive clause.

considered should not be joined by any preposition in GMAT sentences. THUMB RULE..

Ok so based on the MGMAT book, consider X Y is the right idiom (without "to be")....so based on this...I would now go with C...

C is correct.
All idioms in A, B, and D are wrong.
In E, though virtually unavailable outside Yokohama should be modified by a special green tea not by most Japanese.
