Click on the text tag to select it and access the Typography Section from the style panel. You'll be able to apply Colors, Fonts, Size, Line Height and Shadows from the style panel very quickly.
Apart from that everything else is fairly intuitive. Figure out the best combination and make your site dazzle!
You'll need to select the class for the text properly. Refer to the "Working With Classes" tutorial for more info.
