This also makes the mattress eco-friendly, and keeps that muggy, moist feeling at bay, thereby ensuring that clean and fresh feeling stays for longer period of time.

Pressure relieving comfort, minimal heat retention, great edge support– and all at an economical price make the Zinus memory foam green tea mattress a worthwhile investment.

How Firm is it?

The mattress is rated a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 being the firmest). It is of medium firmness, and the average sleeper will find it to be just appropriate.

In addition to this, it is ideal for most back and side sleepers.

How Many Layers Does it Have?

The mattress is made up of 3 different layers of the highest quality fabrics, and these materials are suffused with natural green tea, which has been proven to provide anti-oxide and anti-fungal properties that help to clean the air around the bed.

This layer is cushy and soft, and also helps to alleviate motion transfer, which further adds to the overall comfort of the mattress.
  • Second Layer: This is a 2 inch layer made up of comfort foam, and further helps to enhance the comfort of the mattress. In addition to this, the layer is highly responsive, and provides pressure point relief by distributing weight uniformly
  • Third Layer: This is a 5.5 inch layer made up of high density air flow foam. The layer helps to draw heat away from the body, and also circulate it out of the mattress, thereby helping to create a cool sleeping surface all throughout the night.

How Comfortable & Supportive is this Zinus Mattress?

The mattress is designed to offer the same support and comfort for all sleeping positions.

For back sleepers, the mattress distributes weight evenly, and prevents any pressure build-up, thereby making it comfortable as well as supportive.

However, if you are a bulkier sleeper, you may like a firmer mattress, or may find that this mattress is too soft for you.

Stomach sleepers on the other hand, will certainly enjoy sleeping on this mattress. It will help to keep their spine in proper alignment, which implies that you won’t get up with a sore neck, back, or shoulders.

In addition to this, it will create just the appropriate amount of cushioning, in order to make you feel snugged, but not too excessively as you may get a feeling of being trapped.

A side sleeper too, will find this mattress supportive and comfortable.

Side sleepers usually require additional support, as all of their body is positioned in one concentrated area.

Since this mattress is designed to keep the spine in proper alignment, and it also offers great pressure point relief, so side sleepers will feel that their weight is being better supported by this mattress than by their bodies.

This in turn will lead to greater comfort and good quality sleep.

Does it Sleep Hot?

The air flow technology in its bottom two layers work well for alleviating heat retention.

This technology helps to circulate body heat out of the bed instead of trapping it inside which is usually an issue with other foam fabrics.

The cover of the mattress is also very breathable which further mitigates heat retention. Overall, the mattress stays fresh, comfortable, and cool in any sleep position throughout the night.

Does it have any Smell?

Sometimes a new mattress emits some odor known as off gassing, and this is often a common issue with foam mattresses as harsh chemicals are used in its making, and these chemicals can emit an unappealing odor.

However, the Zinus Green Tea mattress is not produced with any harmful chemicals, which is why there shouldn’t be any off gassing.

When you remove the mattress from the packaging, you simply have to allow it to take its shape. You can then start using it instantly, and there will be no odor.

UPDATE: we received several complaints about a strong chemical smell lasting even for months. You might want to look elsewhere for the time being!

How is Motion Isolation and Sinkage?

The formulation of the Zinus memory foam green tea mattress is such that you won’t experience any movement in case your partner changes position while sleeping.

This is a big plus for all those who sleep with a restless partner.

The mattress allows you to experience a good night’s sleep while changing positions throughout the night.

And that is why Zinus has formulated the mattress to last for several years, however, this totally depends on how often you use it and how you use it.

The Zinus mattress overall provides long lasting stability as well as durability.

What type of Cover Does it Have?

The cover of the Zinus memory foam green tea mattress is made up of knitted jacquard. All the layers of the mattress are wrapped in it, and it adds additional softness to the bed.

The cover is highly breathable, thereby alleviating heat retention, and helping to keep the bed to stay comfortable and cool throughout the night.

The cover is white in color, and basic in design with a modern look.

How to Care for the Zinus Green Tea Mattress?

It is recommended to buy a mattress protector, in order to keep your mattress from getting any spills or stains on it, and ruining its warranty.

Also, since the mattress is not waterproof, so it is suggested to opt for a waterproof mattress protector.

Does it require a Foundation?

You can use the mattress on a box spring foundation, or you can get a new foundation like a platform bed, as it will work well for a foam mattress.


Zinus ships the mattress directly from its factory, which eliminates the problem of having to shop under the pressure of sales tactics, and also alleviates the total cost of the mattress.
