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..

consider x y...

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.
