How to darken grout?

Hi all -

I just had very black tiles installed, with Laticrete Midnight black color grout. The grout unfortunately is very gray, at least next to the very black tiles. Can anyone recommend a way to darken this grout? I see something called Aqua Mix grout colorant, but not sure if this works. The grout is still maybe slightly moist from its original application and has not been sealed, etc.

Any advice would be appreciated!

June, all you can do is buy a bottle of the colorant and see how it looks. I bet it'll look better than what you have now. Follow the instructions on the bottle.

Did the installer say anything about correcting this?
