The English sentence is awkward. Does it mean: There is little sugar in the tea?

Yeah, it does. I hear a lot of Indians translating it literally and saying "The sugar is less", but to English speakers it definitely sounds awkward.

The English translation needs to be corrected to either: "There isn't enough sugar in the tea, "The amount of sugar in the tea is less" or "There is little sugar in the tea."
