Pure Comfort Infused with Green Tea
Not only are all of the Zinus mattresses in this line incredibly comfortable and well-built (as we will discuss later) they are all also infused with green tea. I know, I know – you wonder why they would be infused with green tea. What possible benefits are there to this procedure?
Little known to many people is the fact that green tea can have benefits whether you drink it or simply inhale its scent. The scent itself will help you get a deeper, more peaceful, night’s sleep. The green tea and the added ActivCharcoal both work to keep odors under control without adding excess chemicals to your mattress.
Six Sizes, Four Heights
The options are truly plentiful when it comes to this mattress. It doesn’t matter what size of bed you have – as long as it isn’t round, we’ve probably got you covered. This mattress is available for beds of six different sizes: twin, extra-long twin, double, queen, king, and California king.
Even better, depending upon how plush you like your mattress or how much space you need to take up to reach the proper place on your headboard, you can select among four different heights of mattress – 6 inch, 8 inch, 10 inch, and 12 inch. The only limitation you will find in these sizes is that the extra-long twin only comes in the 8-inch tall option.
Multiple Foam Layers
Whether you select the 6-inch tall option, the 8-inch one, the 10-inch, or even the one that is 12 inches tall, you will receive a mattress made up of several layers of fused foam.
The 12-inch mattress has the most layers. A total of four thick layers of foam, each serving its own purpose, makes the 12-inch the most comfortable one. 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 only three layers. The two 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. Without the proper support, your back and neck can quickly move out of alignment. This is especially true for side sleepers.
To stay comfortable throughout the entire night and awaken feeling refreshed, your body needs just the right mix of hardness and softness. The precise mix you need will depend on your own body. 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. This is why companies come out with so many variations of their mattresses.
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.
I have barely scratched the surface here, but there’s no way to do justice to this mattress no matter how much I write. You don’t have to take my word for it though, there are thousands of customer reviews on the Zinus Green Tea that support my opinion, and you can read those here on Amazon.
