(C) Correct
(D) Incorrect modifier.
(E) wrong modifier - indicates that Japanese are virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.

OA is C.

But all those who answered it correctly, please explain why did you choose C??
Don't we require 'considered as' in C?

'Consider As' is incorrect idiom.
'consider to be' or just 'consider' are correct idioms.

A little addition.

When you use "consider" as "regard", you should not use "as", "to be" etc.

I'll pick C as it brings the subject 'A special Japanese green tea' in the at the beginning of the sentence and does not contain errors that A does.

C clear and concise. Considered as is not required and also considered a gourment delicacy is better than considered as a delicacy fit for gourmet
