Fireplace tile

I'm wondering what the best practice is for tile-against-wood. As you can see the tile will be butting up against the wood mantle. I'll have 1/8" grout gap between tiles. Should I butt the tile right up to the wood or leave 1/8" gap and grout? Thanks

Any time tile changes directions or meets a different material you need to use caulking.
Should be able to find color matching caulking.
OK, thanks. I'll pick-up some sanded tile caulk.
