Many people find the scent of Green Tea to be calming, and when incorporated into a mattress, this can help provide a deeper, more restful night’s sleep.
Zinus infuses its memory foam mattresses with natural green tea extract to maintain freshness, and also with Castor Natural Seed Oil to naturally eliminate odors & bacteria. The green tea and the added ActivCharcoal both work to keep odors under control without adding excess chemicals to your mattress.
Frequently Asked Questions - (FAQ's)
Which memory foam mattress thickness should you choose?
To stay comfortable throughout the night and awake feeling refreshed, your body needs just the right mix of softness and base support. Without the proper support, your back and neck can quickly move out of alignment. This is especially true for side sleepers.
You may have sore spots due to arthritis or joint degeneration, which will greatly affect your comfort. Your weight will also play a role in what you find to be hard or soft. Bedding manufacturers make a range of mattresses to cover variations in sleeping styles, and personal preferences in comfort.
Generally speaking, the thicker the mattress, the more plush and soft the mattress will be. The 8" mattresses are designed with back sleepers in mind. The 10-12" mattress is designed for back/side sleepers. The 13" mattress is designed for all around sleeping, including for those who sleep on their stomach. The only limitation in these thicknesses, is the extra-long twin only comes in the 8 inch option.
Zinus Green Tea Foam Layers
Regardless of the thickness, all Zinus Green Tea Foam mattresses are made up of several layers of fused foam.
The 12-inch mattress has four thick layers of foam, making the 12" the most comfortable mattress for many people. It features a top layer of memory foam followed by a layer of comfort foam and a layer of high-density foam, finishing off with an even higher-density support foam.
The 10 and 8-inch mattresses feature three layers. Two layers are high-density layers, are combined into one layer because there isn’t enough room to accommodate an extra layer for airflow. This also makes them a tad less plush than the 12 inch option.
Memory Foam and Base Support
You may wonder what the differences are between the different types of foams used to create this (or any) line of mattresses. Take a moment to think about what you need in order to be comfortable for an extended period of time. Obviously, you don’t want something too hard – no one likes to sleep on a rock. Therefore, you wouldn’t want a mattress made only of high-density foam.
That being said, a soft mattress made of only memory foam would lose its shape after time and could cause the heavier parts of your body to fall a little too far into the foam.
The density of the Zinus Green Tea is 3lbs, which means it’s not plush and not firm. This makes it the perfect middle-of-the-road mattress that suits many type of sleepers, and this also makes it the perfect choice for those who are new to the world of memory foam. If you prefer your mattress to be firm, you probably shouldn’t choose the 12 inch option, but you’d be even better of with the Ultima Comfort mattress from the same company, which I’ve reviewed here.
Does the memory foam mattress retain heat and make you feel hot?
The level of comfort depends on the sheets that you use. Egyptian cotton or bamboo sheets will keep you cool in the Summer, and switching to flannel will keep you comfortable in the colder months.
Things you need to be aware of when buying a mattress online
Buying a bed mattress online means it will be compressed, rolled and shipped to your front door in a box. These weigh around 74 pounds (or 33.5 kilos), so you should make sure someone else is around to give some help lifting these into place before unboxing.
Once unboxed, these need up to 72 hours (3 days) to fully expand to their correct shape. This time is also needed to allow any odor from the memory foam to completely dissipate.
It's recommended that the box be opened within a week of receiving it. Leaving it too long in the box can cause some minor decompression issues.
