Me too for C.
(A) Adverb instead of an adjective is used in "Delicacy fit".
"Consider As" - wrong
(B) wrong modifier - indicates that brown sugar is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.
(C) Correct
(D) Incorrect modifier.
(E) wrong modifier - indicates that Japanese are virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.

I see my mistake now ... thanks for your replies folks!
E is wrong ans

I think "A" is the answer

(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. NOPS, SOUNDS WIERD
(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. CHANGES MEANING NEAR GOURMET DELICACY
(D) Most Japanese consider genmai-cha, a special green tea which contains brown rice, as a delicacy virtually unavailable outside Yokohama. CHANGES MEANING NEAR "DELICACY VIRTUALLY UNAVAILABLE"

Lets ace together!!

'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
