What adhesive needed to reattach shower wall tiles

I only have about 15-20 4x4 tiles to put back on.

Is this the correct stuff?

Tile Repair Mortar

Looks to be about the perfect amount that I would need. It's in powder form and you add water to it. But it only says mortar, not thinset...

It looks like the right stuff. I've always used traditional thinset for repairs though.

I would carefully work to remove the old thinset in the repair area. You don't want to simply slather on more on top of the old as the thickness will make your repair tiles stick out from the others.

What type backing will you be reinstalling these tiles on? I do hope it is not sheetrock. Got pictures?

The backing is actually plaster...
