Medium-resolution optical spectroscopy of the candidate young stellar objects associated with the small, nearby molecular cloud Lynds 1333 revealed four previously unknown classical T Tauri stars, two of which are components of a visual double, and a Class I source, IRAS 02086+7600. The spectroscopic data, together with new V, RC, IC photometric and 2MASS J, H, and Ks data allowed us to estimate the masses and ages of the new T Tauri stars. We touch on the possible scenario of star formation in the region. L1333 is one of the smallest and nearest known star-forming clouds, therefore it may be a suitable target for studying in detail the small-scale structure of a star-forming environment.
