Tuft & Needle just launched an all new mattress for 2018 called the Mint. This mattress is thicker and plusher than the original Tuft and Needle. I was able to buy a twin size earlier this year. Below are my findings. A queen size Mint mattress retails for $995 after discounts and comes with two free pillows.
Overview of the Tuft and Needle Mint Mattress
The Tuft and Needle Mint arrives in a box very similar to the original Tuft and Needle mattress.
Here’s what it looks like out of the box. To open it just use scissors and carefully cut into the plastic making sure not to cut the fabric or the mattress.
Below is a video overview of the mattress.
Construction of the Tuft and Needle Mint Mattress
1. More Graphite
30% extra graphite maximizes cooling, sweeping 50% more heat away from the body.
2. Higher Quality Gel
Upgraded Ceramic Gel absorbs 5 times more heat than conventional blue-gel products.
3. Open Cell Technology
Our open-cell foam technology is designed to allow air to flow freely through the mattress, increasing breathability.

My Tuft and Needle Mint Findings
The Tuft and Needle Mint is a considerably softer mattress than the original. You sink into this mattress right away and it hugs you a lot more as you can see in the picture below.
Below is another video showing how responsive each layer is inside the mattress. Notice that the top layers still recover fairly quickly.
Here’s a quick video that illustrates how the Tuft and Needle Mint Handles Motion transfer. Since it’s an all foam mattress and it cradles so well, you really won’t feel movement from your partner at night.
Finally, here’s a video taken with my thermal camera that shows heat retention on the mattress.
My Tuft and Needle Mint Recommendation
If you want a soft mattress that you can really sink into quickly, this is a great mattress. While it’s easy to make a soft mattress, it’s not so easy to stay cool. Tuft and Needle has incorporated multiple cooling features that will add up to a comfortable and cool nights sleep for side sleepers or anyone who wants a super comfortable and conforming mattress.
