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 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!!

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
