        I would go with the white thinset just to avoid seeing any of the grey in the spaces between tile. This would be true if you are grouting or just butting the edges together.

        You may even find a mastic that will work - and will be easier to install the tile. However, you'll likely have to do a few rows at a time, let the mastic cure and then continue.
