Typically with a t-match the matching arms are adjusted for an impedance of
200 ohms and then a halfwave coax 4:1 transformer is used for matching to 50
ohms unbalanced feedline.

I do believe that the Telrex monoband yagis employed the use of a T match in
the driven element. The impedance of a T match is not 50 ohms but 400 to
600 ohms. You would probably need a 9:1 Balun. A 1:1 Balun will not work.
