Apply CSS to LWC

I've got a simple LWC for a rich text box. The default size is only a few lines and I'd like to make it bigger.
Here is the HTML for lwc:
<lightning-input-rich-text value={rtval} onchange={handleChange}>
How do I make the text box have height:14em?

Thanks, those should work, but they do not. I can change it in the chrome developer tools, but the css file has no effect. Any other suggestions?

To do that, we're going to have to go into our component add a CSS file. So in the same directory new file, going to call it firstComponent. css . Since lightning Web Components use the Shadow DOM to style our individual components will use the CSS pseudo class of :host to specify in our component only https://www.targetpayandbenefits.us/

DOM inspector says class="slds-rich-text-editor__textarea slds-grid" but the below doesn't work.
.THIS .slds-rich-text-editor__textarea {
