Tuft and Needle Mint Mattress Unboxing

The Mint is the latest mattress from popular bed-in-a-box retailer Tuft & Needle and claims to be everything the brand’s flagship model is and more. I’m super excited to test it out and see how it stands up against the original, but first I’ve got to let it decompress.

So let’s unbox this bad boy and get it set on the frame!


Tuft & Needle is advertising the Mint as the “next step” in its brand revolution, so I’d characterize the bed’s construction as being the grown-up version of its predecessor. Not only does it have three layers instead of two, it also features extra infusions of graphite and gel beads for better overall cooling.

I’ll dive deeper into all of this in my full review, but wanted to give you a sneak peek at the Mint’s different layers.

Cover – The cover is set in a pleasant charcoal color and made of a polyester blend. The fibers are knit together, which makes for a thick and cozy feel.

Comfort Layer – The comfort layer is built with 3” of Tuft & Needle’s proprietary Adaptive Foam. This material is interesting because while it’s incredibly soft—allowing you to sink in for instant pressure relief—it also has a quick response to pressure, which ensures that you’ll never feel stuck in the mattress.

Transition Layer – Below the comfort layer, you’ll find an additional 2” of the brand’s Adaptive Foam. This section is infused with gel beads, which help to regulate temperature throughout the mattress.

Foundation Layer – And finally, the base. This layer is comprised of 7” of high-density poly foam, which establishes the bed’s structure and acts as the support for the softer foams up top. This layer also features some added edge support, which helps to firm up the sides of the mattress.


  • Balanced foam feel – One of the first things I’m noticing from the Mint is its balanced foam feel. This means the bed’s going to have a nice mixture of pressure relief and support, which would satisfy a variety of sleepers.
  • Relief without stuck feeling – In this vein, the mattress seems to do a good job of balancing out the cushiony relief of its comfort layer with the firm support of its high-density poly foam base. For more information, check out my full Tuft and Needle Mint mattress review!
