Full Zinus Memory Foam 10 Inch Green Tea Mattress Review

With over 25 years of experience in the bedding industry, Zinus has become one of the preeminent manufacturers of quality mattresses that are specially designed to meet the requirements of everyone.

Using the highest quality fabrics, Zinus has truly committed itself to crafting one such durable mattress that will deliver great support and comfort- and all at an economical price.

Yes, it is the Zinus memory foam green tea mattress that is created with the most cutting edge technology using natural green tea, in order to help keep the mattress fresh.

This renewable extract is a plus as compared to other mattresses that use noxious chemicals for odor control.

In addition to this, the mattress allows you to get used to it easily.

What Type of Mattress is it?

Zinus Memory Foam 10 Inch Green Tea is a memory foam mattress that conforms to the natural shape of the body.

the Zinus Green Tea mattress in a roomThe latest transformation of memory foam replaces some of the conventional petroleum with natural plant oil, and thus includes natural green tea, in order to help keep the mattress fresh.

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.

  • Top Layer: This is a 3 inch layer made up of memory foam. It easily conforms to your body, and also contours to it, thereby creating a hugging feeling. 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.


CertiPUR-US logo

All the materials and fabrics are CertiPUR-US certified, and no noxious chemicals are used in their production. Also, they have a low VOC level.

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.

the zinus shipping boxHowever, this also implies that you cannot try it out before purchasing it, and as such, it can be difficult to find out whether or not this bed is the best pick for you.

The mattress is smartly shipped- the company’s patented technology allows the mattress to be efficiently compressed and rolled into a box, and shipped conveniently to your doorstep.


The company offers a 10 year limited warranty, which implies if anything happens to your mattress as a result of any defect in its manufacturing within a span of 10 years from the date of purchase, you can simply contact the company.

Your mattress will either be replaced or repaired absolutely free of cost. However, this warranty will cover only manufacturer’s defects.

30 Night Risk Free Trial

Zinus believes that its users will find complete satisfaction in their mattress. However, if you discover for any reason at all that you are not happy with the product, you can return it.

This trial period allows you to try out the mattress at your place, and in case you are not satisfied, you can get in touch with their customer support service.

All that you need to do is simply contact the company within 30 days of purchase for a complete refund.

How much does it Cost?

The price of the mattress varies according to the sizes. However, it is quite economically priced for all the features that it offers.

Zinus Memory Foam 10 Inch Green Tea Mattress Review- Our Verdict

If you are seeking a mattress that offers medium firmness, mitigates heat retention, and increases pressure support, then the Zinus memory foam green tea mattress might be a good investment, especially considering the very low price.

The mattress does a decent job of conforming to the natural shape of the users body, and creating a hugging effect. However, it does not conform too much to make you feel you are being enveloped by it.

The memory foam is highly responsive, and designed for those who prefer a plush feel, along with the pure pleasure of its natural green tea.

The bottom layers of the mattress offer great bounce and support, which is much more as compared to any other foam mattress.

The mattress also excels in regard to pain relief by offering enough bounce back, in order to make it easy for you to move about.

Motion transfer is not an issue, which further adds to the overall comfort that the mattress provides.

Don’t order from their website!

Ordered 8″ Pressure Relief Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress.

Tried for couple days and it was very soft for us.

But the huge problem is the return policy. On the web site they say –

“Please submit this form for return authorization. We’ll send you a prepaid return label and instructions for arranging a FedEx pick up.”

Turned out it’s only for unopened boxes, which is not mentioned on the site. They don’t even have return policy for opened mattress on their web site. After contacting them they told me to arrange return pick-up by myself, donate mattress to charity organization. The problem is most of charity don’t pick-up used mattress and none of them will pick up free in our area. Very disappointed!


My zinus queen size with the cooling gel has issues, a very strong musty or mold smell, after three weeks it’s even stronger. I’m disposing of it and sending pics to the company hopefully will get a refund.


I bought the queen size 12″ Zinus Memory Foam Green tea mattress 2 months ago. I got bad allergic rashes after sleeping on the bed. What do you suggest?

Stacey Morgan – STAFF

Hi Santosh,

you should definitely return it!


I need the plush & softness that the 12″ states it provides. I have a medium Tempur-pedic and it is MUCH TOO Firm/Hard. It does Not hug my body nor relieve the pressure point pain of my shoulders & hips, and I am a combination sleeper but primarily a side sleeper, that’s why my shoulders are so painful with the current medium firm Tempur-pedic I have.
Why does the 12″ Zinus Green Tea Mattress Not work with the adjustable base???


We purchased the first mattress. Love the way it feels, no more back aches. HOWEVER the smell is still there and it isn’t pleasant. Green tea isn’t pleasant, but it smells more like mildew or chemicals to me. Called Amazon within the 30 days. They replaced it. That process is very easy. The second one smells also. Very disappointed. Nice bed, nice price, BAD SMELL.


I have the 12″ Zinus green tea mattress, ordered from Amazon in May 2018. 3 Months in and it still reeks of chemicals (not green tea). Recently deveIoped a sore throat and itchy eyes that don’t seem to ever go away completely. can’t say the mattress was the cause, but I broke out in hives on my neck and forearms over one night last week (luckily they went away). Even with AC running all night, this is still too hot for me. Also has very poor support – I’ve woken up with leg cramps twice, and I’ve recently started getting back pains that I only feel in the morning. I’m pulling this thing out of the house tonight, doubt anyone will even wan this if it’s free. I’ll use an air mattress until my Purple mattress arrives next week.




I have had my 12” Zinus green tea memory foam mattress for one week. I love it. I had a very slight odor the first day, not noticeable on the 2nd day. I purchased my bed from Amazon. I saw the reviews but I had a friend that bought one first and had NO issue with odor. Maybe certain batches are an issue, but nothing on my end. I really love this bed. I’m a senior, 71, retired on a fixed income. This bed is the best for my hip, back and pocketbook. Thank you.


2 weeks and mattress still smells bad. More of a musty smell than a chemical smell.

Stacey Morgan – STAFF

Hi Ron,

just return it.


I have a Zinus green tea mattress from a couple of years ago and there was basically zero smell from day one. However, I bought a Zinus Cooling Gel Memory Foam Mattress in April and it has a strong chemical odor that will not go away even after leaving it outside (covered porch) for several days. I’ll be trying out their return (donation) policy.


My mattress is comfortable and rose to full size but it’s been weeks and the chemical smell is still almost as strong as when I opened the mattress. I have no idea how to get rid of it.


May I ask you what the tags on the bed on says, if it contains any? Thank you. I am planning to buy one but afraid the “green tea” is not natural as they claim if it has that bad smelling.


I have 2 of these Zinna mattresses and they smell awful! There are many complaints online as well. How can you say there is absolutely no odor?

Stacey Morgan – STAFF

The odor is highly unusual and you should return them. One of this mattress’ selling points is the absence of chemicals so I’m not sure where it’s coming from. Surely not normal.


A month ago I purchased a full size SAP sensations Zinus memory foam mattress. Up till now it emits a bad chemical smell. What to do to get rid of this smell ??
Thanks for answering back.
