Same kit as you would use in a rim that's not asymmetric.
Any tape that's between 25mm and 30mm should work, personally I would go with a tape that would reach the walls that would make a better seal and when removing the tires the probability of damaging the tape setup would be lower.

Your link goes to a rim that is 28mm wide internally, so you want tape that is 34mm wide to go bead to bead so the tyre forms a seal with the tape and not the rim/tape, as there's possibilities of leaks, damaging the tape when removing the tyre, etc. Loads of info here on setting up tubeless.

I've converted my BTLOS 30mm inner using this

Tape 33mm:

Sealant:

and some DT Swiss tubless valves with removable core.

I mounted the tires initially w/o sealant, and they actually kept the pressure for 2 days (dropped from 30 psi to 27psi). Added 60ml sealant for a 29" 2.5 Minion and a 2.3 Aggressor. Holds the air very well.
