Tea in mud pots

Drink lots of fluid. Kolkata is humid at the best of times and a day out can leave one dehydrated. Recharge by drinking lots of water. Try the tea, too, especially when it's sold in small earthenware pots. The tea is boiled and so is safe, and the pots are broken after use and so are hygienic - and eco-friendly.
