Crackle tile sealing and grouting

We are installing a crackle glazed tile in our kitchen (backsplash). MSI Highland Park Dove Gray. I know that it needs to be sealed before grouting can be done. Is there a specific type of sealer for this job, or can any tile sealer be used? Impregnating, Surface, water based??? Also, if anyone is familiar with crackle tile, what grout were you happy (unhappy) with using?
I am hoping to use a pre-mixed grout so little color variation can be seen.

Hi Cheryl, welcome. I would use Miracle 511 penetrating sealer but there are others that work just fine. I have bought it at Home Depot. The grout type depends on the joint size. What size joints do you have?
