    First of all the issue to be noted is whenever the subject of a sentence is in 3rd person and singular number and the sentence is affirmative there should be "s" or "es" after the principal verb.In your sentences no "s" is used after " talk".

    1. What is the text that talks about cold showers?

    2. What is the text which talks about cold showers?

    Sentence one is correct.  This is because the clause following text is a restrictive clause and is needed to describe the noun (text). What text? The text that talks about cold showers.  You can discern that the clause is restricted, because it is not separated by a comma.

    Which is used for a non-restricted clause,  The text, which talks about cold showers, was submitted by the student.  The clause is not needed to understand the subject (text) in this sentence.  The text was submitted by the student.  The non-restrictive clause can also be distinguished from the presence of the comma.

    Is it just one text?  Then it's 'What is the text that talks about cold showers?'

    If it's more than one text, it's 'What are the texts that talk about cold showers?'
