Select Colour
Open your file in photoshop
Click on the 2 coloured boxes on the left ..... The colour picker will open.
Move your cursor (which changes to an eye-dropper) over your text and click
..... your chosen colour will be the New colour
Click OK

TIP: Click the little curved arrow beside the 2 rectangles on the left to swop the foreground/background colours (and set them)

Anything you now type/draw should be a perfect colour match.

(Photoshop is not an ideal program for working with text)
Since your sample text is slim, you might get a different color if you use the default 3x3 average.

You can switch to point sample, then zoom to 400% or more and click inside the text to get the original color.
