  tooltip label { color: green; }


As the GtkTooltip documentation says:

| By default a box with a GtkImage and GtkLabel is embedded in the tooltip

Again, since the window created by GtkTooltip to show the tooltip can
be customised, it's not entirely possible to style tooltips that are
created by applications or additional libraries; it's only possible to
style tooltips that are created by GTK+ itself.

I'm pretty sure you need to start reading a guide to CSS, or at least
the CSS specification on selectors.

You can also start from the GTK+ API reference:
