Nakhla says 50 grams on a Box and it contains as much.
El Hennawy last 50 grams had only 36 grams in.
Nakhla not as juicy as El Hennawy.
Nakhla handles heat better than El Hennawy.
Flavor lasts longer with Nakhla.
This is just my personal experience with El Hennawy.
In my personal experience, as the coals burn down with Hennawy, the flavor comes through more. I use the same heat management with Hennawy that I do with Nakhla, and it never burns for me. Maybe my box was fresher? I've noticed older unwashed shisha tends to burn more than more recently manufactured stuff.
