Minocycline and Green Tea

Well, yesterday i got my minocycline perscription filled (my first acne perscription) and i've been reading up on green tea and i'm thinking about picking up some green tea extract vitamins from GNC. Is it okay to take both of these at once? I'm not too familiar with antibiotics, so i'm really not sure what i can and cannot do. I don't want to accidentally cancel out the effects of one or the other or something.

There is no interaction between minocycline and green tea.

It is recommended to take minocycline at least 1 hour before meals or 2 hours after meals. Taking minocycline with a meal that included dairy products may slightly (by 11.2%) decrease and delay by one hour the peak plasma concentrations.
