proper mortar mix for structural building tile?

We need to repoint some joints in the basement walls of our 1920 bungalow. The walls are made of hollow red clay tile blocks. What mortar mix would be most appropriate for this?

Type N is fine, so long as it is a real type N. Try and find some pre-bagged type S mortar (just add water) though and you should be fine.
