the idiom is : considered + name
thus, we're left with C and E

It's not E as "most Japanese" can't be "virtually unavailable outside Yokohama"

C it should be

vote for E

In C, the word "it" could be "a special Japanese green tea", "brown rice", or "a gourmet delicacy."

I'll go for C
"consider + noun" is the proper idiom and most economical use of words in the GMAT. "consider to be" and "consider as" with next to always be wrong. On this basis, A, B and D are out
E is out because it has dangling modifier problem
"Though virtually unavailable outside Yokohama, most Japanese"

Bhai, can you plz post your reason?

(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.
this sentence is uneconomical and not clear. delicacy fit for gourmet

(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.
Apart from delicacy fit for gourmet vs gourmet delicacy, this sentence suggest brown rice is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.


(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.
Fit

(D) Most Japanese consider genmai-cha, a special green tea which contains brown rice, as a delicacy virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.
or brown rice as a delicacy

(E) Though virtually unavailable outside Yokohama, most Japanese consider genmai-cha, a special green tea that contains brown rice, a gourmet delicacy.
Paul explained E

proper idiom is "consider X + noun" when you use it in the sense of "regard as"
ie I consider my dog to be an animal--> wrong, no, no
ie I consider my dog as an animal --> wrong too
ie I consider my dog an animal --> right
Commit this to memory because this is a concept that is almost always tested on the GMAT

Yes, Paul, you are right. It has a misplaced modifier problem. I got a lesson. 8-)
