Caulk tile to tub seam before or after grout?


Title is pretty self explanatory. Im going to have all my tile up soon and Im starting to think about the grouting and caulking. Im going to caulk the wall seams first then grout. But Im not sure which to do first where the tile meets the tub. Thoughts?

Caulk tile to tub seam before or after grout?


I always caulk after the grout is completed---knife out the wet grout at the wall junction so there is a place for the caulk----

I've never heard of caulking before the grout goes in---but it could be done,I suppose.
