I changed my permalinks and it working fine but I need to redirect old tag folder to archives/tag to not lose links which google indexed

below is my .htaccess file in the root of my recipes site http://foodonia.com

# Use PHP5.4 as default
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php54 .php

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

Example: http://foodonia.com/tag/fudge/ should redirect to http://foodonia.com/archives/tag/fudge

I tried to add each one of blow codes but redirect not working

#RewriteRule tag/(.*) archives/tag/$1 [NC,L]

#RewriteRule tag/$ /archives/tag/$1 [NC,L]

#RewriteRule tag/ /archives/tag [L]

I try to search for solution but can't find similar post
