Answer: 
The best type of mortar adhesive to use on most any tile jobs are thin-set mortars, like the VersaBond linked to below. You can also opt to use a pre-mixed mortar like you were mentioning, but make sure that it's not in a water-prone area or in steam showers. A good pre-mixed mortar, or mastic, to use is OmniGrip.

Answer: 
I was just alerted to your question; Hopefully you already rec'd feedback from others, but I used #122 "Linen" by Polyblend. It is lighter in color than most of the tiles, but not any lighter than the lightest colors found in the Tuscany tiles.

Hi Brittany,
Since everyone never chooses one grout color, it will be up to your personal preference.
A few years ago, I wrote a post called What Color Grout Should I Choose for My Tile?

Hey jdc04,
Depending on what tools and materials you have now as how you'd want to install the tiles will determine what you'll need to get.
For starters, you can use an item called SimpleMat (linked below), that can adhere the tiles to the wall without any mortar or tile adhesives.

You'll also need the proper grout, gloves, grout sponge, sealer, a few tile spacers, and a bucket of water.
This does not include tile cutters, as I don't know what type you'll need. We do sell and rent out tile cutters at your local store, as well as all these other materials.
As for installation instructions, we carry a great how-to guide you can view by using the link below:

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Look! It took me some time to find the right tile for my kitchen backlash and I am glad I found this tile. It looks high-end and easy to install. I highly recommend this tile August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the tile! Love the look of these tiles. The beveled edges look very high end. My husband installed the tile and he was very careful with the grout as we wanted to keep the integrity of the tiles. This was very time consuming, but worth it. He used a bag with a tip to put up the grout. We also used the bone unsanded grout. February 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful! The tile creates a whole new feel in our kitchen. Gorgeous! May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GORGEOUS KITCHEN! Ok, so I've never put up tile before. I did read the reviews on this tile before purchasing 46 sq.ft of it. It looks fantastic in my kitchen. I can't believe its MY kitchen. It took me awhile to put up being slower because I've never done it before. I accented it with the natural stone tiles I also purchased at Home Depot. I love it!!! So does all my friends and family on Facebook. The only difficulity I found was in grouting with the beveled edges, it was slow going and I found using a pastry bag with a metal cake decorating tip worked wonderful. I still have some cut work pieces to finish but I'm almost there. July 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love my kitchen backsplash! Color variation can be drastic so use care when purchasing. I went to several Home Depot's to get consistency in color. My tile guy used 'unsanded' grout which gave it a more 'rustic' look that I wanted. Since the edges are beveled, it required more cuts in order to look the same. June 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Makes a Great Looking Backsplash Overall, this tile is pretty good material, but not without problems. Imported from Turkey. Finished job, using "Linen" (#122) color non-sanded grout, looks really good, providing me the desired appearance for a backsplash against my kitchen's Namib Gold granite (South Africa). These tile were very easy to cut, shape, & trim using a 7" wet saw. Installed using premixed thin-set (AcrylPro), powder grout (premixed Polyblend grout NOT available in non-sanded at HD), and matching Polyblend caulk. Fortunately, the natural imperfections in the face of this stone tile is able to accommodate the occasionally-imperfect dimensions of these tiles, which were not always exactly 2" x 4", not all at 10 mm thickness, not all bevels identical, and not always equally-spaced on the mesh sheeting / backing. This job was 28 sq ft, so I over-bought to 35 sq ft, allowing me to select sheets that looked better next to each other, and avoiding the sheets having the poorest spacing issues. At times I found the need to detach really poorly-spaced tiles to bring the alignment back to acceptable levels. Since I don't do this type of work every day, I don't know if poor spacing on the mesh from the supplier is the norm, or if I am too picky, but it was annoying to deal with. And in the store, I had to go through about 45 sq ft of sheets to find 35 un-broken tile sheets. Although these quality issues were encountered and burned time trying to manage, as said above, the job came out looking great. Still a little grout clean-up to do, but see pix for an example of the installed tile. December 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kitchen remodeling We refurbished the kitchen deciding on resurfacing cabinets in lieu of total replacement. It was very fast, clean and the results were beautiful. The backsplash was a combination of two different designs which picked up the color of the cabinets beautifully. The style made installation quick and easy. July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product easy to work with and cut First time backsplasher, I installed this tile using a wet saw to cut the stone. No problems, easy as pie and looks beautiful. May 28, 2013
