You should get the name with the getName method. In your case :


If not, you can load the term and after get the name:

$term = Term::load($term[1]->id());

$term = \Drupal::entityTypeManager()->getStorage('taxonomy_term')->loadParents($tid);
$term_name = $term[key($term)]->getName();

jBlobsmith answer is not correct because he is using static term id ($term[1]) if parent's term id is 3 than it will not work.You have to change this key manualy in variable ($term[3]).

  • That's why I specified "In your case"...
