Comment (by torben.tschechne@…):

 Hey @nikolov.tmw - I have not used term_description before. I have used
 category_description( $category_id );

 In 4.8.3 and it returned the description of the product category. But in
 4.9 this stopped working - when using category_description I have not the
 possibility to define a taxonomy. So maybe this was a bug in 4.8.3 and I
 had a benefit from this bug ...?

 When I use:

 term_description($product_cat_id, 'product_cat');

 It does work in 4.9
