As soon as you press T you should see the cursor indicate which tool you've selected. As Fixx said, if you got the wrong one just press T again and you'll see it switch.

You could change the Artistic Text tool's shortcut to something else, such as shift-A, if you want.

(Note, too, in case you change that shortcut: if you're already using a particular tool, such as the Frame Text tool, and and it's not one that alternates with another tool, then when you push its shortcut key when the tool is already active you'll switch to the previous tool that you had selected. So you should check your cursor before pressing a shortcut key (and after :) ).

If I press T and I'm not paying attention to the cursor, I can end up typing a 't' if I press T again to change the tool. I wonder if they could change it to A for Artistic Text? I suppose that, since they use M to toggle the Rectangle, Ellipse and Round Corner tools, that having the text tools toggle too makes sense.

"A" is the shortcut for the Node tool. You could use shift-a.
