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.
