Default Ukulele Action - Recommended String Height?

Just got a new tenor Ukulele today; a Lanikai MA-CET. A decent lower end uke with a decent Fishman pickup system and tuner. It has wider string spacing which they say is good for guitar players. I'm just starting to play a bit, so I didn't want to spend the big bucks yet.

The action seems on the high side at the 12th fret to me. My gauge says it's .090, 7/64ths or 3mm at the 12th using the three different scales on my action height tool.

What is a good string height at the 12th fret??
