I finally found upstream discussion on this very annoying problem.

Evolution for Debian 11 Bullseye under wayland has ugly font problem as
of May 2, 2021.  (Similar issue with firefox, etc.).

This is caused by WebKit bug which exposes it under sandboxing. 


According to upstream, this is not evolution bug.

For now, I workaround this problem by starting "evolution" by defining
shell alias and starting it from console shell prompt.

alias evolution="WEBKIT_FORCE_SANDBOX=0 evolution"
