Contraceptive pill - ok to swallow with tea?

I swallowed my contraceptive pill with tea the other day. I was just wondering if this could have rendered the pill ineffective or if it is ok to do this?

Swallowing the contraceptive pill with a mouthful of tea will have no effect on the effectiveness of the pill. Neither the temperature of the liquid or its constituent chemicals has been shown to have any negative impact on the workings of the pill.
