"There is too little sugar in my tea" would be more commonly said in English.

Yeah, this is definitely Hinglish, but you do hear Indians using 'less' like this quite often.

that's true but this could just as easily be a comparative. as in, "there is less sugar in my tea (than in my coffee)"

It could also be "There is not (too) much sugar in my tea." "Too little" implies that the speaker would prefer more sugar, which is not necessarily the case.

I have never heard this phrase in English.

I would only use less if I was comparing. Ex: There is less sugar in my tea than I would like. Is this sentence necessarily negative? What would you say if you are happy with just a little sugar in your tea?

Can I understand "कम" as "not enough" in this context or would that be incorrect?
