WHAT IS THE ZINUS GREEN TEA MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS?

The Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress is a low-cost mattress with an extra hygienic twist. It promises to relieve aching joints and muscles with the power of pressure-relieving Certi-Pur-US® Certified memory foam.

SO FRESH, SO CLEAN

What sets this mattress apart from other memory foam options is that it contains a proprietary blend of natural green tea and ActivCharcoal. This powerful ingredient combination battles moisture throughout the night, keeping the mattress dryer and fresher than the average memory foam mattress.

 

We know memory foam to be warmer than innerspring or latex mattresses. The dense foam doesn't lend itself to airflow, and when mixed with body heat, the warm, damp air gets trapped in the mattress. Zinus addressed this common dilemma faced by memory foam fans with the green tea and ActivCharcoal blend.

PAIN BE-GONE

Memory foam is one of the most sought after mattress materials because of the way it cradles the body during sleep. Zinus takes this support to the next level by introducing their pressure-relief memory foam. Achy joints and muscles finally find relief atop this supportive yet soft material.

SAFE BY DESIGN

Adding to the comfort of the mattress, the Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress is 100% CertiPUR-US certified. This certification means the foam used to make the mattress has been inspected and deemed safe and non-toxic.

PRODUCT SPECS

Zinus offers Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress sleep solutions for every situation and every bed frame. In this section, we'll explore everything to consider in the Zinus Mattress review. We'll go through sizing, thicknesses, composition, mattress cover complications, and bed frame options.

ZINUS MATTRESS SIZES

The Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress by Zinus comes in the full range of standard bed sizes. Choose from twin, full, queen, king, and California king to find the width and length that best suits your bedroom dimensions and budget.

ZINUS MATTRESS THICKNESSES

Besides selecting the bed size, the Green Tea Memory Foam also comes in a variety of thicknesses. The thickness is your guide to how plush or firm the mattress will feel. The thicker the mattress, the softer it will feel. Find the complete Zinus mattress thickness rundown below:

SIX INCHES

A six-inch thick Green Tea Memory Foam mattress has a firm feel. On a scale of 1 to 10, with ten being the softest, the six-inch mattress has a 5.9 rating.

EIGHT INCHES

Eight-inches of total thickness for this mattress still delivers a firm feel but is slightly more soft than the six-inch version. Using the scale mentioned above, the eight-inch mattress rates at 6.1.

TEN INCHES

The ten-inches-thick Zinus Green Tea mattress is a medium-firm and rates at 6.4 on the 1 to 10 scale.

TWELVE INCHES

The softest choice for the Zinus Green Tea is their twelve-inch thick mattress. It's labeled as plush and has a 6.6 softness rating.

ZINUS MATTRESS COMPOSITION

Each Zinus Green Tea mattress contains multiple layers of foam to give functionality to the mattress. Exact measurements vary by size and thickness of the mattress, but all models include a layer of memory foam followed by a layer of pressure-relief high-density foam, which is all supported by a high-density base support foam.

ZINUS ENCASEMENT AND MATTRESS COVER

Wrapping the foam is a cute, white knitted jacquard encasement. Although the encasement has a zipper, Zinus instructs the user not to remove it. Because the cover isn't washable, Zinus advises consumers to purchase a separate cover to maximize the mattress's lifespan.

BED FRAME OPTIONS WITH ZINUS

No Zinus mattress review is complete without discussing necessary accessories. One of the most compelling reasons to choose a memory foam mattress is the sheer freedom of the bed frame choice. With the Zinus Green Tea mattress, it is no different. Zinus is compatible with platforms, box springs, and adjustable bases. This mattress works best on a flat surface. If you opt for a frame with slats, make sure the gap is less than three inches.

PRICING

With all the technology and options, it's hard to believe Zinus mattresses can be so cheap. To delve deeper into this Zinus mattress review, we need to investigate pricing. Prices vary depending on the dimensions and thickness of the mattress. Smaller and thinner mattresses fall on the cheapest end of the pricing spectrum.

  • THE NEW PURPLE MATTRESS 11”
  • NECTAR MATTRESS 11”

ZINUS GREEN TEA MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS 12”

CONSTRUCTION 3 STARS
For all of its positive qualities, there's bound to be some drawbacks to find a mattress at this price point. Construction is the one place that the Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam is a little lackluster. The mattress doesn't always hold up as well as we'd like. As a result, we've given this mattress three stars. It's still a great mattress, but we'd like to see some improvement of the design—particularly the mattress cover.

COMFORT 5 STARS
As far as memory foam goes, the Zinus Green Tea is an exceptionally comfortable mattress. It's soft and cozy while keeping its shape.

SUPPORT 5 STARS
They designed this mattress to support the body. The pressure-relieving memory foam adequately brings the body into proper alignment when sleeping. It's not too firm nor too soft. It's a comfortable sleep.

WARRANTY 5 STARS
Backed by a limited ten-year warranty, Zinus has you, and the Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress covered. For a budget mattress, ten-years is a good deal.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Relieves back and joint pressure
  • Great price


Cons

  • Questionable durability
  • Off-gassing aroma
  • Mattress cover not included


AMERISLEEP AS3 MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS 12”

The Amerisleep AS3 Memory Foam Mattress with twelve-inches of thickness is the plushest model the company makes. This option is ideal for those who move around at night.

CONSTRUCTION 5 STARS
Construction of the twelve-inch Amerisleep AS3 Memory Foam Mattress is excellent. They include a generous amount of high-quality, plant-based memory foam, followed by three subsequent layers of high-quality function foam. Unlike other memory foam options, we don't see this mattress succumbing to the sag any time soon.

The celliant-infused mattress cover is the icing on this construction cake. It pulls moisture away from the body while keeping it from reaching the vulnerable foam within the mattress. It's machine washable and proven to induce sleep.

COMFORT 5 STARS
This mattress is the epitome of comfort. The soft, yet supportive feel is unbelievable. There is enough cushion to generate some bounce in the mattress without compromising its back-saving benefits.

SUPPORT 5 STARS
The AS3 by Amerisleep is as supportive as a best friend. For those who toss and turn, this mattress might make all the difference in which side of the bed you wake up on.

WARRANTY 5 STARS
Amerisleep is so confident in the durability of the AS3 Memory Foam Mattress they attach a limited 20-year warranty to it.

Pros

  • Soft and supportive
  • Made from plant-based foam
  • Excellent warranty duration


Cons

  • Expensive
  • Firmness won't suit every sleeper
  • Off-gassing scent upon arrival

THE NEW PURPLE MATTRESS 11”

The New Purple Mattress is an eleven-inch-thick specialty mattress unlike any other on the market. The flexible Purple Smart Comfort Grid design made from hyper-elastic polymer sleeps cool and clean while relieving pressure points.


CONSTRUCTION 5 STARS
We've got to give it to Purple; their innovative design is unlike anything we've ever seen in the mattress world. The Smart Comfort Grid, combined with the base support layer, is well-constructed. It feels like it would hold up longer than any foam bed.


COMFORT 4 STARS
The motion isolation on the New Purple Mattress is top notch, making this an excellent option for couples. It sleeps cool even in the warmest conditions and perfectly molds to any body shape. It's a medium mattress and only comes in one comfort level, which might not suit all sleepers. If you are looking for an authentically firm mattress, this one might not be for you.

SUPPORT 3 STARS
Many factors can contribute to whether or not a mattress is supportive of any individual sleeper. Some find the New Purple Mattress supportive while others complain of extreme sagging.

We're on the fence. Although we find the mattress sufficiently supportive, we can also see how it might not suit everyone. Ideally, Purple would offer multiple comfort levels for different preferences.


WARRANTY 3 STARS
As a pricey mattress, it's a little surprising that the New Purple Mattress comes with a limited ten-year warranty. As a result, we've given it four stars.

Pros

  • Comfortable and innovative design
  • Non-toxic material
  • Good customer care


Cons

  • No off-gassing smell
  • Only one support level
  • Short warranty for an expensive mattress

NECTAR MATTRESS 11”

The last competitor in our Zinus mattress review is Nectar. The Nectar Mattress by Nectar Sleep is the gentle giant of the mattress world. It's made to be both soft and supportive for sleepers of all shapes, sizes, and in all sleep positions. The mattress combines the power of cooling gel memory foam, breathable base layers, and a Tencel mattress cover to enhance circulation in the mattress at night. The result is a more refreshing night's sleep.


CONSTRUCTION 5 STARS
Made from a combination of cooling gel memory foam and other CertiPUR-US base materials, the Nectar is of solid construction. The Tencel mattress cover not only keeps the body and mattress cool at night but also keeps critters like bedbugs away.


COMFORT 3 STARS
Such is often the case when attempting to please everyone, the Nectar Mattress is a little firm for a one-size-fits-all approach to mattress making. It would be better if they offered more comfort options.

SUPPORT 5 STARS
Because of the firmness of Nectar, the support category is where this mattress shines. The foam hugs the body to keep all joint points aligned for maximum pressure relief.

WARRANTY 5 STARS
Nectar wants you and your mattress to stay together forever. That's why they give a lifetime warranty. If you are still skeptical, they also offer a 180-night trial run with the mattress. If you decide not to keep the mattress within the trial period, Nectar will pick it up without a penny leaving your pocketbook.

Pros

  • Supportive mattress
  • Excellent construction
  • Cooling mattress
  • Lifetime warranty


Cons

  • Will off-gas for a few days upon unboxing
  • Only one comfort level

ZINUS MATTRESS REVIEW CONCLUSION

After considering the comparison made here in this Zinus mattress review, we've concluded that the Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress is a great value. At less than half the price of its competitors, Zinus measures up in almost every category.

 Zinus could improve the construction of their Green Tea mattress and include a mattress cover, but this would inevitably result in a price increase. The best bet is to use the money you've saved on your mattress to buy a washable mattress cover.

Results from Zinus mattress review brought the Green Tea Memory Foam in at 4.5 out of 5 stars. It's not the best mattress we've reviewed, but for the price, it's unbeatable.
