Yeah, that's annoying. It makes me want to use Perl sometimes.
However, GNU grep does have a --perl-regexp (-P) option, so
this would work,
$ printf 'x\t'|grep -P '\t'
but it's not portable enough. Even among systems with recent
GNU grep, some compile it out, e.g. Debian's grep says this:
grep: Support for the -P option is not compiled into this --disable-perl-regexp binary
