Can I take green tea extract without a meal?

I know that green tea's anti-oxidation properties is stopped by taking it with milk, so I know not to take my green tea extract supplements with that, but I also know that most supplements need to be taken with a source of fat to absorb them.

So do I have to take green tea extract with a source of fat other than milk/dairy, or can I take it without a source of fat (with no meal at all, or a meal without fat)?

Thank you in advance, I appreciate the help!

Some of the Polyphenols are fat soluble (carotenoids) but most are not so you can take Green Tea Extract by itself as thats what i do before i workout at 4:30 a.m. along with Green Tea. If you have to add fat and don't want to add dairy then take a teaspoon of Olive Oil as a fat source....
