Standard rear is 45 teeth. I would seriously see how the 14T on the front goes before changing the rear:

1. The 14T makes quite a big difference (about 7%) and that may be enough for you.

2. Fitting the 14T screws up your speedo readings quite a lot, a larger rear sprocket would only make it worse.

3. You may run into issues with chain adjustment and have to get a longer chain.

Give the 14T a good workout first, I reckon.
