Zinus Memory Foam 8 Inch Green Tea Mattress Review


Overall Rating
Recovery Time


The Zinus Green Tea Mattress is a memory foam mattress who’s top priority seems to stem majorly around offering a high degree of comfort through innovate memory foam technology. While the above ratings the mattress has been given may seem somewhat lackluster, the product most shines when one takes note of how it achieves its level of firmness (which we will cover in a moment).

I’ll first say that, despite how comfortable the Zinus Green Tea Mattress may truly be, it’s not exactly the most practical option, nor is it always the most frugal. Those looking for a simple memory foam mattress that does the bare minimum in a functional and practical way may want to look elsewhere. While this mattress has its own uses, it’s not exactly your “safest” option. Let’s go in for a closer look.


Zinus Memory Foam 8 Inch1As previously mentioned, the Zinus Green Tea Mattress achieves its level of firmness through a rather peculiar manner. While some memory foam mattresses may use one or even two types of memory foam in their make, this particular mattress uses three different strategically-placed foams. As a rule of thumb, it’s safe to assume that the foam used gets higher in density the further you get to the very middle of the mattress, while the foam on the outside will be lower in density.

This is what makes the Zinus Green Tea Mattress so interesting. Because sinking too deep into a mattress can be bad for your back, the Zinus gets more and more dense the more you sink into it. While some mattresses have this same characteristic, it is usually achieved through the use of two foams; one very high and one very low in density. The end result is that heavier people are brought to a screeching halt once they sink so deep into the mattress. With this particular model; however, this is no longer an issue.

Recovery Time

Because so many thin layers of foam are used to gently prevent you from squishing the mattress altogether, you’ll notice that the only part of your mattress which needs recovering is the outer and (sometimes) inner layer. Since these layers are so thin and so low in density, you’ll find they pop back into position in no time at all. The only time you’ll ever possibly have to wait any significant amount of time for the mattress to pop back into place is if you somehow squish the mattress’ innermost layer, which, as it turns out, isn’t an easy ordeal. All in all, the Zinus Green Tea Mattress has one of the best recovery times out there, even when compared to memory foam mattresses at five times its cost.


Unfortunately, the amount of durability inherent in this mattress is by far its worst attribute. It’s not that the the Zinus Green Tea Mattress is flimsy when stacked up to others of its type, it’s that mattresses of this type as a whole simply cannot be overly durable. The very thing responsible for the supreme level of comfort in this mattress is also the very thing that reduces its overall level of durability – its outer layer.

Because the outer layer of the mattress is made with the use of low-density memory foam to make it more comfortable and soft, the Zinus Green Tea Mattress is not at all resilient to wear and tear of any sort. Unfortunately, buyers will have to decide between a very high level of comfort or a very low level of durability; there is often no in-between option. While there are some exceptions to this rule, the Zinus Green Tea Mattress isn’t one of them.

Warranty Information

Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch2This is another area where the Zinus Green Tea Mattress lacks and is what makes it far from the best option for the more frugal consumers out there. The mattress comes with a five-year warranty. While this may not sound terrible to some, it’s important to remember that the majority of memory foam mattresses will offer a ten-year warranty for no extra cost. In fact, most mattresses at less than half of the Zinus Green Tea Mattress’ price even offer ten-year warranties. I can’t say I’m overly thrilled with a measly five years. If you’re looking for something with any degree of guaranteed longevity, this particular product might let you down.

Overall Summary

While the Zinus Green Tea Mattress is certainly the furthest thing from a frugal purchase or a practical mattress, nobody can say that it’s not one of the most comfortable models in its price range. If at the end of the day a high overall level of comfort is what you’re after, the Zinus Green Tea Mattress is sure to prove a winner. Otherwise, you likely have better options available for a lower cost.
