Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress

Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress

It's Great For:

Considerations:

The Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam mattress is an 10” thick mattress comprised of 3 layers of foam. The memory foam is infused with green tea, keeping your mattress cool and fresh, and activated charcoal, blocking moisture that leads to odour. The cozy cover is made of jacquard knit, providing a soft and plush sleeping surface.

The mattress’s top layer will help support aching joints and give pressure relief, which still allows you to feel cushioned. Those who sleep warm will find the mattress breathable and cool due to open air pockets in the middle foam layer, but it won’t reduce extreme heat. Those who co-sleep will find that it provides a good amount of motion isolation. The Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress has a solid base for edge support, comfort and long-term durability.

Zinus Green Tea Gel Foam Mattress

Zinus Green Tea Gel Mattress

It's Great For:

Considerations:

The Zinus Green Tea Gel Mattress is a 10” thick mattress and an excellent choice for those wanting a cooling mattress while still keeping to a budget. The Zinus Green Tea features a breathable and soft knit jacquard cover, creating a perfect surface for your sheets. With a top layer made of gel-infused memory foam, this Zinus mattress will keep you the coolest, making it an excellent choice for those that sleep extra warm. The bottom two layers of the Zinus Green Tea Gel Mattress combine comfort and support atop a solid high-density foam base, creating excellent motion isolation for those that co-sleep.

This mattress is a great pick for those that want a firmer, more supportive mattress due to needing extra pressure relief. Canadians who sleep extra hot will love the temperature control that comes with the gel infusion, while the green tea in the middle foam layer will keep the mattress fresh and breathable. The Zinus Green Tea Gel Mattress best suits side and back sleepers.

Zinus Cloud Memory Foam Mattress

Zinus Cloud Memory Foam Mattress

It's Great For:

Considerations:

The Zinus Cloud Memory Foam Mattress is the thickest in our review today, coming in at 12” thick and has four total foam layers. Its unique microfibre layer just underneath the quilted jacquard knit cover makes this mattress stand out. This top layer, which sits on top of quick-response memory foam, cradles your body in a cloud-like cushion. With both comfort and memory foam layers in the middle, those who co-sleep will find the motion isolation excellent.

The memory foam layers feature a green tea infusion that will help keep your mattress stay fresh, while the activated charcoal will block moisture and keep odours away. At the bottom of the Zinus Cloud Memory Foam Mattress is a firm, high-density memory foam support base, creating a solid foundation for anyone needing extra pressure relief. This mattress is a great choice for those who sleep on their side or back, as stomach sleepers may find it too firm for their liking.

Zinus Foam and Spring Hybrid Mattress

Zinus Foam and Spring Hybrid Mattress

It's Great For:

Considerations:

The Zinus Foam and Spring Hybrid Mattress 8” is the only mattress on our list today that has spring coils. This mattress is perfect for those that sleep on their stomach, as it is on the softer side. Because of the spring coils, the Zinus Foam and Spring Hybrid Mattress do not have motion isolation features, which should be considered if you co-sleep.

Featuring a jacquard knit cover, the mattress’s sleeping surface is plush and soft. A small foam layer provides comfort and a small amount of support, which works great for those who don’t need any extra pressure relief. The transitional Viscolatex foam layer ensures you won’t feel the coils digging into your body while sleeping, and those with latex allergies will appreciate the alternate material. Unlike the other mattresses with a memory foam base, this mattress has a more traditional spring coil foundation.

Mattress Construction​

All Zinus mattresses in our review today feature slightly different construction techniques. Knowing how a mattress is put together is vital before purchasing, whether it is all-foam, hybrid or has additional features. Let’s take a look at the construction of the different Zinus mattresses on our list.

Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress

  • Jacquard Knit Cover. This non-removable plush cover is both breathable and soft.
  • Green Tea Memory Foam Layer. This 2.5” thick foam layer is infused with green tea, keeping the mattress fresh and breathable.
  • Pressure Relief Foam Layer. Made of 2” comfort foam, this middle layer features air pockets, helping to keep the mattress cooler than other memory foam mattresses.
  • High-Density Foam Layer. A solid high-density memory foam base, this 5.5” foundation helps with motion isolation, edge support and overall comfort.

  • Gel Infused Foam Layer. Infused with gel, this 2” top memory foam layer will regulate your body temperature all night long. 
  • High-Density Foam Layer. This 2.5” middle foam layer does an excellent job reducing motion between co-sleepers and providing pressure relief for those that need it. 
  • Support Foam Layer. Providing an ideal base, this 5.5” high-density foam layer offers edge support and prevents overall breakdown over time. 

Zinus Cloud Memory Foam Mattress

Zinus Cloud Memory Foam Mattress Construction

  • Microfibre Layer. A luxurious layer, this 1” microfibre layer will make you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud.

  • Memory Foam Layer. This 2” memory foam layer is infused with green tea, making the mattress fresh day in and out. 
  • Comfort Layer. Made of breathable memory foam, this 3” thick foam layer reduces motion transfer between co-sleepers and keeps your temperature slightly cool. 
  • Support Foam Layer. As a great foundation, this 5” high-density foam base layer will keep the mattress structure intact over time while providing edge support. 

Zinus Foam and Spring Hybrid Mattress

Zinus Foam and Spring Hybrid Mattress Construction
  • Jacquard Knit Cover. Soft and plush, this non-removable cover is a perfect sleeping surface. 
  • Fibre Padding Layer. This thin layer of fibre batting creates an ultra-soft sleeping experience, ideal for those that sleep on their stomach.
  • High-Density Foam Layer. This .5” memory foam layer creates a comforting and supportive top surface.

Firmness

Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress

5.5 on Firmness Scale

The Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress is medium firmness, ranking at 5.5 on the firmness scale. This mattress is firm enough to provide support to those that don’t need any additional pressure relief. It feels plush and soft, but its thinner foam layers are not ideal for those with back or hip pain. 

This mattress is best suited for those who sleep on their stomach, as it is soft enough to be highly comfortable. Side and back sleepers may need a firmer mattress to get their needed support. This isn’t the softest or firmest mattress in our review today, and it could be an excellent option for Canadians looking for something in the middle.

Zinus Green Tea Gel Mattress

6.5 on Firmness Scale

The Zinus Green Tea Gel Mattress is slightly firmer, ranking a 6.5 or medium-firm on the firmness scale. Its thicker foam layers make it an excellent choice for those needing additional pressure relief. Canadians suffering from back and hip pain will appreciate the comfort and support this mattress can offer.

The Zinus Green Tea Gel Mattress is great for those that sleep on their back or side. Those who sleep on their stomach may find the sleeping surface too firm for their liking.

Zinus Cloud Memory Foam Mattress

7 on Firmness Scale

Coming in at 7 on a firmness scale, this medium-firm Zinus Cloud Memory Foam Mattress is the firmest in our review today. This mattress is the most supportive and thick we are reviewing and is an excellent choice for those needing joint support and pressure relief.

The Zinus Cloud Memory Foam Mattress is better suited for those who sleep on their back or side and co-sleepers needing motion isolation. Those who sleep on their stomach may want a softer mattress than this.

Zinus Foam and Spring Hybrid Mattress

5 on Firmness Scale

The Zinus Foam and Spring Hybrid Mattress is the softest mattress in our review today, ranking medium firmness and a 5 on the firmness scale. The thinner foam layers on top of more traditional coil springs create a more plush, sinking feeling that some may appreciate more. For those needing additional pressure relief, this mattress may be too soft for their comfort.

The Zinus Foam and Spring Hybrid Mattress will be best for those that sleep on their stomach. Canadians who sleep on their side or back may crave a firmer mattress to get their needed support.

Motion Isolation

Motion isolation is an essential mattress feature, especially for those who co-sleep. Having a restless partner that keeps you up night after night is disruptive, and choosing a mattress that reduces motion transfer is essential. If motion isolation is an important factor for you when buying a new mattress, it’s worth mentioning that the Zinus Hybrid mattress offers no motion isolation and is best suited for solo sleepers.

While most of the Zinus mattresses we are reviewing today have sound motion isolation, the Zinus Cloud Memory Foam Mattress performed the best. Because of the many foam layers and excellent high-density base, motion transfer is nearly eliminated with the Zinus Cloud Memory Foam, and it is a top pick for co-sleepers.

Pressure Relief

For Canadians that suffer from joint pain or wake up stiff and uncomfortable, choosing a mattress with extra pressure relief can be crucial in getting a good night’s sleep. Often, those who sleep on their side or back may also need additional pressure relief to sleep comfortably.

Those who do not need further support will find that the Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam and the Zinus Foam and Spring Hybrid mattresses will provide overall support. However, Canadians that need additional pressure relief should consider the Zinus Cloud Memory Foam Mattress, as it has more support foam than the other models we are reviewing.

Temperature Control

Zinus Mattress Temperature Control

For those that sleep extra warm or live in hot climates, good temperature control of a mattress can be critical. If you wake up hot and sweaty, this is often due to your mattress. Typically, memory foam mattresses retain heat and can increase your temperature throughout the night.

Of the four Zinus mattresses we reviewed today, only one has a temperature control feature in place. Any Zinus mattresses will do the trick if you sleep relatively cool naturally. However, if you sleep hot, the Zinus Green Tea Gel Mattress has an excellent gel layer that will regulate and lower your temperature all night long.

Edge Support

Zinus Mattress Edge Support

For Canadians who sleep on the edge of the bed, ensuring you have a mattress with proper edge support is a consideration. Many memory foam mattresses will start to sag and sink on the edges over time, especially if you sleep or sit there often.

While the Zinus memory foam mattress reviewed has decent edge support, none have any specialized edge support measures to combat sinking or sagging over time. For those that sleep on the edge of the mattress, The Zinus Foam and Spring Hybrid Mattress is the best option for edge support. Coil or spring mattresses are better equipped to reinforce edges and provide continuous support.

Ease of Movement

Many Canadians desire a mattress that allows them to move easily throughout the night and get out of bed without a struggle. For restless sleepers who like to change positions and those who might struggle with transferring into bed, choosing a mattress with good ease of movement is vital.

The four Zinus mattresses in our review today all feature different levels of movability. The Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam and the Green Tea Gel mattress feature good ease of movement that will suit most moderately active sleepers who can get out of bed easily.

For Canadians struggling to get into bed easily, the Zinus Zinus Foam Hybrid Mattress may not provide the firmer surface needed, and changing positions throughout the night could prove to be difficult. The best mattress in our review today for those who need great ease of movement is the Zinus Cloud mattress, as its firm surface makes it easy to move without feeling stuck in a plush surface.

Pricing

All the Zinus mattresses reviewed today range in features, benefits, and cost. Zinus mattresses with unique features or more foam layers will cost more, but all start at a relatively inexpensive price considering other options on the Canadian market. Here are the sizes, prices, and dimensions for each Zinus mattress model we are reviewing today.

Shipping

Zinus mattresses bought on Amazon typically ship for free to most locations within Canada. Delivery times range depending on the mattress style and size, but most are delivered within one week of placing an order.

Some Zinus mattresses can even be delivered the following business day. If purchased from any other online store that sells Zinus mattresses, shipping and delivery will vary based on the store’s policies.

Sleep Trial and Returns

When buying a mattress online, it can be a concern that you won’t be happy with it since you can’t test it out in person. Ensuring you fully understand the mattress’s sleep trial and return policies are essential before purchase.

A Zinus mattress includes no sleep trial, regardless of where you purchased it. Returns of a Zinus mattress will vary depending on the store policy in which you bought it. Reading the store’s return policy where you purchased your Zinus mattress is extremely important before you buy it.

Warranty

Most mattresses come with a warranty, and Zinus mattresses are no exception. All Zinus mattresses include a 10-year warranty with purchase, and the warranty applies no matter where you bought your mattress from (as long as you purchase from an authorized retailer).

This warranty covers issues like indents larger than 1.5”, faulty craft, physical flaws where the foam has split or cracked, and structural defects.

When you buy a Zinus mattress, you must first register your mattress online at the Zinus website. Ensure you keep your original receipt somewhere safe, and do not remove any tags or the cover from the mattress. Once you file a warranty claim, Zinus will assess the damage and possibly repair or replace the mattress.

Final Thoughts

Zinus makes some excellent mattresses available in Canada that are perfect for those on a budget but still want some luxury features. With options like temperature control, pressure relief and motion isolation, Zinus will surely make a mattress that will work for nearly every Canadian.
