Should you want to give the user enough space to type in a bigger piece of text, Textarea field is the most appropriate solution.
It creates a text area where the input data can be placed in several lines. Textarea field is more convenient to read and edit a text this way.
Limitation of Textarea field: users are not able to customize the style of the text with the bold, underline, italic format, and insert pictures. In this case, you can use the TinyMCE field.
