You can add a new text in three different ways:
Note: it's also possible to insert a text box by clicking the Insert Autoshape icon at the top toolbar and selecting the shape from the Basic Shapes group.
Click outside of the text object to apply the changes and return to the slide.
The text within the text object is a part of the latter (when you move or rotate the text object, the text moves or rotates with it).
As an inserted text object represents a rectangular frame (it has invisible text box borders by default) with text in it and this frame is a common autoshape, you can change both the shape and text properties.
To delete the added text object, click on the text box border and press the Delete key on the keyboard. The text within the text box will also be deleted.
Select the text box clicking on its border to be able to change its properties. When the text box is selected, its borders are displayed as solid (not dashed) lines.
Click the text within the text box to be able to change its properties. When the text is selected, the text box borders are displayed as dashed lines.
Note: it's also possible to change text formatting when the text box (not the text itself) is selected. In such a case, any changes will be applied to all the text within the text box. Some font formatting options (font type, size, color and decoration styles) can be applied to a previously selected portion of the text separately.

You can select the font type, its size and color as well as apply various font decoration styles using the corresponding icons situated at the top toolbar.
