The following package by Stephen Kaufmann, available from MathSource,
should do what you want:
Perturbation
The aim of this package is to show a possible
implementation of perturbation methods with Mathematica.
It can be used to generate educational examples of
perturbation exapansions. The methods of straightforward
expansions, strained coordinates, and matched and composite
solutions are implemented.

You also need the following package:
NonNegativeQ
The Mathematica functions Positive, Negative, and
NonNegative evaluate for numbers only. They can be used to
define properties of symbols but for combinations of such
symbols, the properties are not evaluated any further. The
function NonNegativeQ tries to find out if the result cannot
be negative. In such cases, it returns True, otherwise False.

I had already downloaded these Notebooks. Unfortunately, it looks like
there were some conversion problems when they were updated from
V2.2->V3.0. In particular, the section on Matched and Composite
Expansions is slightly broken. However, most functions work fine. I
have attached (slightly) edited versions of these Notebooks. I've also
Cc:d this to Stephan as he might want to fix the problems I've
encountered.

Using Stephan's package, I get the following solution:
Cos[t] + (eps (-3 + 2 Cos[t] + Cos[2 t])) / 6 +
2
2 5 eps
(eps (-48 + 29 Cos[(1 - ------) t] +
12
2
5 eps
16 Cos[2 (1 - ------) t] +
12
2
5 eps
3 Cos[3 (1 - ------) t])) / 144
12
Cheers,
Paul
